    Hiroshi Sugimoto's Architecture series began in 1997 as a commission from the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, for their traveling exhibition At the End of the Century: One Hundred Years of Architecture, which originated at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo in 1998. Since then Sugimoto has continued to photograph icons of Modernist and contemporary architecture, including this image of Le Corbusier's Chapel of Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp, France.
