Ecclesiastical forms

Vesturkirkjan, the west church, lies on a hill above Torshavn, the capital of the Faroe Islands. From most of the town it looks like a undecorated black pyramid. It looks as if an alien ship has landed. As you walk up to it you'll find this pyramid is actually made of copper and has a red tinge. When you reach the church you see that the facade facing away from town, is almost completely covered in glass. It is as if the church is turning away from the town. I doubt that is the intention though.
