The chapel of Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp, a famous work of the twentieth-century architect Le Corbusier, was recently vandalized, according to French media reports.
The only stained-glass window signed by Le Corbusier was shattered:
“they broke into a thousand pieces the only glazing signed by Le
Corbusier,” said Ronchamp’s deputy mayor.
Consecrated in 1955, the chapel, originally designed as a site of pilgrimage, is now part of a monastery of Poor Clare nuns.
