EVOLVING CATHEDRALS

on August 17, 2010

I am hooked. My husband and I are really enjoying the STARZ mini-series, Pillars of the Earth, based on Ken Follett’s 934 page book. The story revolves around building the biggest cathedral ever in about the 12th century. This last episode, Tom the Builder, one of the main characters, shows his sons a piece of  glass and tells them that in the future buildings will be built with it. Not sure if he meant the walls or the windows, but either way he was right.

This is what he was building with hundreds of helpers and years of hard work.

Fast forward many years to the 20th century. Tom the Builder’s prediction manifests in many ways, including this amazing structure in California, the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove.

You think they HIRE A PROFESSIONAL to do the windows?

Wonder if they need some Solar Shades?
