I’ve been passing this building project daily for a couple of months now. Built lengthways (?) across a number of back gardens that back onto Western Way, the building has what appeares to be a tower on one end and a curved wall on the other... What could it be?
Well, this morning I spotted it’s crowning piece… a shiny Christian cross. What an odd place to build a church :) Anyone know who is moving in?
The giant abandoned chicken shaped church of Gereja Ayam in Magelang, Central Java whose designer by Daniel Alamsjah originally intended it to resemble a dove.
Local builders had other ideas.
The cost of construction forced Alamsjah to close the church (also used as a rehabilitation center, treating disabled children and drug addict)s fifteen years ago. Despite its currently dilapidated and graffiti’d state, it’s still in use as a place of worship.
