I first became intrigued with how places of worship could be integrated into modern spaces when I came across Le Corbusiers Chapel of Notre Dame du Haut. Previously I’d associated religious buildings with the ecclesiastical architecture we come across in towns, cities and villages across the country on an everyday basis. Seeing how Le Corbusiers brutalist concrete curves could let in shards of light to make the building feel sublime rather than how brutalist buildings are often perceived, dark and cold, really got me thinking.
When I came across Fabrice Fouillets “Corpus Christi” photo series I had to post it up. The images of modern spiritual buildings give you a fresh perspective on how people react to religion in their surrounding space. The spaces erase any pre-conceptions you may have of old village churches and stuffy vicars and instead present a forward thinking space that reacts to modern, forward thinking religion.
