Architecture With and Without Le Corbusier: Jose Oubrerie Architecte. The Church at Firminy and The Miller House are two architectural masterpieces realized by architect Jose Oubrerie, who was an assistant of great master Le Corbusier. The church is one of the last projects of Le Corbusier, which was left unfinished for 40 years; having worked on this church from its inception, Oubrerie finally completed and adapted it to current needs and standards while respecting the integrity of the original design. The Miller House, Oubrerie's own late masterpiece from the 90s, is a landmark in Lexington, where the architect devoted his mature years to academic leadership at the University of Kentucky. The thorough documentation of the two buildings with an extensive collection of previously unpublished drawings, documents and photographs builds a precise and vivid testimony of Oubrerie s unique architectural trajectory, with Le Corbusier's formidable legacy as a formative and creative influence.
