Cathedral of the Resurrection Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
Its cylindrical shape, cut at the summit by an oblique plane and crowned with 24 lime trees, like the use of brick, uncommon in religious architecture, integrates perfectly into the city centre of Evry, which made particular use of this material. The architect, Mario Botta, played on the light penetrating through two large modulable arched glass windows. Note the cross, tabernacle and statue of the Virgin Mary by Gérard Garouste in the crypt. A major success.

    Pros

    Un exemple unique dans l'histoire de France contemporaine : Comment construire une cathédrale au milieu de rien dans une ville nouvelle où beaucoup reste à faire? Le résultat est la création d'un vrai lieu de prière qui impose sa beauté dépouillée. La construction fut un défi face aux critiques et difficultés en tous genres, avec un budget modeste. A voir.

    Cons

    La difficulté de l'approche. Evry est déconcertante et reste à découvrir...
