Now, if you remember this Maltese church that COULD become a reality (but isn't yet), how about this (scroll to next picture please):

This ugly concept IS reality. Fritz Wotruba, an athiest, built this stone-age style compound back in the 70's in Vienna, Austria, just blocks from Gerald's boyhood stomping grounds (Gerald gets the hat tip on this, btw).

To me, this building is very reminscent of those cartoon scenes where a solid building would blow up, then the pieces of it would fall from the sky and form a structure, just like this one. Is it really sturdy? I'd be afraid to go in. However, it has stood up for over 30 years.

This could also be something from the Monty Python and the Holy Grail days. Nee! Nee!
