The modern church

catholic

So what do you think?

This is St Mary’s Cathedral in the centre of Perth undergoing extensive renovations and extensions.

As you can see the new look includes a very modern semicircular section around the front.  Long windows and curved pillars.

Very modern.

There’s also underground parking and extensive offices.

It’s a beautiful building, clearly not big enough for the congregation, hence the extension.

But…

But…

I don’t know.

I’m not Catholic.

I guess I’d rather they make a wholly modern building somewhere else and keep the integrity of the older style.

I love the old cathedrals and churches of Italy and I can’t imagine them doing this.

On the other hand I think the glass pyramid works quite well at the Louvre.

What do you think?
