The Monastery of Sainte-Marie de La Tourette remixed

Interesting video by Rob Carter:

“Stone On Stone” is a stop-motion video animation that uses the architectural language of High Gothic and Modernism to invent a contradictory history of their evolvement. The theme starts and finishes with the vast and unfinished Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine, NYC. It is contrasted with Le Corbusier’s La Tourette monastery in France, competed in 1960. The video uses this anomalous but single-minded architectural vision as the foundation for a new emergence of Gothic religious expression, resulting in a complete and unified fantasy cathedral – akin to the building that the Church of Saint John might have aspired to be.

2009, 7 minutes 44 seconds 1080 x 1080 pixel digital video projection B&W/Color/Sound (Clip taken from the 3rd to 6th minute)
