In apparently opposite historical itineraries, on the one hand within the “phantom modern movement” and on the other one through the study of the El Atteuf mosques, you can find a well-known but unexpected intersection: the Chapel of Ronchamp by Le Corbusier.Ronchamp shows that cataloging similar work is impossible or arbitrary. The chapel is both a moment of synthesis of the modern (and not only of the modern movement) and a link between Islamic and Christian worlds that have been often integrated each other without a true balance.Ronchamp breaks and reconstructs the historical synthesis that built the myth of the modern movement. It shows, regardless of the will of its author, the cultural and design experiences dazzled and suffocated by the glowing white architecture of the 1920s 1930s designed, ironically, by the same Le Corbusier. For these reasons Ronchamp not only catalyzes many poetics of the poetics of modernity, but also it realizes the power of the architectural design that can, out of any space-time cataloging, recall distant events, anticipating and exploring future topics.
