Eglise Saint-Pierre, Firminy - Questions
The horizontal banding is primarily a rain gutter system, that double functions as a kind of eave/awning for the corresponding line of low horizontal fenestration--the windows are essentially behind/below the gutter band.
The streaks of light I'm not sure of, but suspect they somehow come from the wall of dot windows that are under the exterior crescent 'awning'.
The entire building envelope works under the concept of going from a square base to a circular top/roof. This means you wind up with four essentially flat triangular walls and odd corners that go from a single point and fan up to a quarter-round. Here's a schematic diagram of the envelope geometry:
