Resurrection of another kind

Hey… The father, son, and holy ghost need an upgrade too. Neo-Gothic architecture can get on your nerves after two millennia. WVA Architects (the guys who made this) gave the church a much needed revisit with a very Frank Lloyd Wright-ish vibe. Designed on a waterfront, the Zhangjiagang church just epitomizes "pristine". The holy trinity is reinforced by the three structures/buildings within the church grounds.

All in all, I really like the modern reimagination. The new steeple looks really iconic. The modernized stained glass art couldn't be more appropriate! A perfect church for the second coming, don't you think?!
