La Cathedrale

You may notice that the windows on the office building have point. They are meant to echo the church feeling - Christ Church Cathedral. The cathedral sits on prime downtown land and some years ago (in the 1980s)   agreed to a building project to help finance the cathedral. For a long time the cathedral sat on stilts as the ground underneath was excavated for an underground shopping mall and the building you now see was built behind the church.

I do find it odd to have this juxtaposition of the church and the shopping mall. Or maybe mall represents the Underworld. Certainly, I found most shopping hellish!
