Light in the Tourette Monastery

Jonila Prifti


Abstract: The paper describes the work of Le Corbusier in La Tourette Monastery with the intention to capture the relationship between architecture and light, as described by the author. Light, playing with forms and materials, enlivens space by modifying the way the built environment is lived, during the day and throughout the year. Ongoing research on new space configuration becomes possible using an intangible element, which represents the main element of architecture. The research was developed with the aim to capture the relationship between architecture and light in La Tourette Monastery. It argues how light, in the late work of Le Corbusier, becomes material par excellence.
