Gleaming White Confection

Notable for its unusual architecture, this church, dedicated to famous Joan of Arc, was opened in 1934. It was built over the preceding two years and is, unusually for a religious building, constructed of reinforced concrete. Thin shell concrete was used for the domes.

Opinion is somewhat polarized regarding the aesthetic appeal of the church. Locals often call it 'the meringue' and this gleaming confection is regarded by some as a bit of an eye-sore. None the less, this was an innovative building architecturally and incorporates elements of Art Deco design.
