The cathedral in nowhere with no one…
Gothic are very usual for Cathedrals as it is just their essence of its soul…

In this Cathedral, I would say it is expressionism of gothic…
The show the greatness, bring you to the sky…
The higher it went, the nearer you are to the heaven…
Depends on period, it can be lighten up, it can be dark…
Of course, vaulted ceilings to bring the weight down to the column…

In this Cathedral, it emphasis on its verticality…
its confidence is not too overwhelming but impressive…
It only uses one material -bricks-for the structure and skin…
The interesting part that twisted is,  bricks are now used for its vertically are compression… through expressionism… the “brickable” magic was born…

Once you enter the cathedral,
Your vision automatically were attracted to the end of the space…
Then, focusing on just one subject… The Altar
After that you see how simple and contemporary the environment as it is very soothing with just a material with the same colour.

The atmosphere is cold but warmth,
It is empty in the building but is filled with energy..
Although it is an old building, but its style just so contemporary…
Its simplicity shows its truly greatness of the cathedral,,,
Its simplicity brings our hearts nearer…
