"La Tourette is designed as a self-contain world for the monks by Le Corbusier. Silence and solemnity are the main ideas of the building. The picture was taken in the west chapel, where the light cannon is the only source of light. When the concrete was gently illuminated, I found peace and awe in my heart."
