When walking the streets of any city it strikes me the quality of the glass that is used in buildings today. This highly reflective and no doubt intensified heat insulating material creates such high saturated colourful reflections. These structures bring colour to a any city that was once bleak and uninteresting. From the 1950’s bleak, anything will do style, enter the colour of glass and beautiful structures of today.

Quote from wikipedia –
“Southwark Cathedral or The Cathedral and Collegiate Church of St Saviour and St Mary Overie, Southwark, London, lies on the south bank of the River Thames close to London Bridge.
It is the mother church of the Anglican Diocese of Southwark. It has been a place of Christian worship for over 1,000 years, but a cathedral only since 1905. The present building is mainly Gothic, from 1220 to 1420.”
The architecture is stunning. Well worth a stop to admire it.
As far as I know only the French would have the courage, and make it work, to put a modern piece of architecture on the same plot of land next to a classic building several hundred years old . The Musée du Louvre originates from the 12th century and later was transformed from a palace to a museum in the Napolionic period.
