Historic site and monument Ecumenical Chapel Magland


Magland (74300)

Inaugurated in 1973, the chapel is the only construction in Flaine without concrete, but with wood and covered with slates. The upper part of the building is underlined by ingenious channels that go around it and evacuate the waters of
rain from the inside, avoiding the use of unsightly gutters and protecting against frost. The furniture was designed by the resort's architect, Marcel Breuer: wooden altar and benches, bronze chandelier. Some works of art adorn the walls of the chapel: Buraglio's "climb to Calvary" (1979), "Tabula" by Simon Hantaï (1980), two acrylic paintings by Bernard Piffaretti (1991, 1992).
