Architecture Interruptusfocuses on one single structure designed by influential twentieth-century architect Le Corbusier: the church of Saint-Pierre in the small town of Firminy, France. The project was commissioned in the 1960s and designed by Le Corbusier with a young associate, Jos Oubrerie, who is now a professor at Ohio State University's Knowlton School of Architecture and is finally bringing the project to fruition after years of delays and interruptions. The book features documentation of the building during both its early and later phases and draws together two important areas of Le Corbusier's work: his Modernist interpretations of ecclesiastical architecture (though the building will no longer function as a church) and his approach to town planning. The catalogue seeks to convey the experience of visiting the structure while also examining the creative interplay of Le Corbusier's and Oubrerie's ideas in its design.
