Text from Wikipedia:

Sainte Marie de La Tourette is a Dominican Order priory in a valley near Lyon, France designed by the architect Le Corbusier and Iannis Xenakis and constructed between 1956 and 1960. Le Corbusier’s design of the building began in May, 1953 with sketches drawn at Arbresle, France outlining the basic shape of the building and terrain of the site.

The buildings contain a hundred sleeping rooms for teachers and students, study halls, a hall for work and one for recreation, a library and a refectory. Next comes the church where the monks carry on alone Finally, the circulation connects all the parts.

The structural frame is of rough reinforced concrete,Also used glass and metal.

    • Hey Fran

      Floors 4 and 5 are residence and study units overlookig outside.
      Floor 3 is the entrance floor , study halls and lecture rooms.
      2nd floor has a refectory room. Floors 2and 3 are overlooking the inner courtyard.
      On the ground floor there are spiritual and service rooms.
