Fiat Lux

Olivier Duport - Fiat Lux
A wide-ranging photographic survey of contemporary and modern sacred architectural constructions in the Puglia region of Italy through nearly 200 cataloged brutalist, modernist or simply eccentric buildings.
Fiat Lux is a meticulously curated collection of sacred spaces spread across the largest region of Italy that is Puglia. In the heel of the boot known for its century-old architectural heritage, this book sheds a light on contemporary, ignored and overlooked buildings from the brutalist, to the modernist—or the simply eccentric.
A landmark survey celebrating misunderstood architects and underrated designs, Fiat Lux investigates and examines the relationship between public holy spaces, divine authority and daily living in the south of Italy.
With nearly 200 buildings cataloged, this guide is the most extensive study of the kind ever conducted in the region and an essential guide for every architectural enthusiast.
