Heavenly Architecture

Christopher Jobson of Colossal posted this bit about St. Joseph’s Church in Le Havre, France and – well, just wow. I’m mesmerized.

Construction on the church began in 1951 and concluded in 1958. The making of the church was part of the reconstruction of Le Havre, which suffered almost total destruction in World War II. Auguste Perret – mentor of Le Corbusier, for all you architecture buffs out there – led the reconstruction of the town and designed the church.

Via Colossal.
