Grajewo Church

Right, that is yet far better than the demolished commieblocks. I'm very glad they demolished almost all of them by now.
On the other hand, I find it really too bad that that suburb has been so traumatized that it wouldn't try any little bit of contemporary modernism. It's all post-modernism.
Bon, I hope this doesn't age too badly... Doesn't it look cheap compared to something original? Sort of, huh?
