A Glaswegian Pyramid That Is Holier Than

Right by the city centre in Glasgow is a pyramid just off a main road, hidden between tower blocks.

It is the Anderston & Kelvingrove parish church and is quite a unique piece of architecture in the city. Usually around the city there are churches that are hundreds of years old and have the traditional stone work. Churches like this one thought were quite a popular site to see in cities from the 1970s onwards. This church in particular was built between 1970-72. Many purposely went against being designed in a traditional way to save money, appeal to new people and seem more inviting.

Inside the church looks no different, apart from the slanted roof bringing light in to the room. It maintains a traditional look throughout though.
