The modern architecture may not be for everyone but I found this place to be inspirational. The shear size means that so many can be accommodated with ease, the space and bright atmosphere is amazing. If faces and perfectly complements the old cathedral.

Massive church with a huge seating capacity. Nice modern architecture with simple lines and a circular shape. No complicated paintings or unnecessary stuff. Very simple and efficient.
