If God has some taste for architecture and desing, he would not like this cathedral

Now that they've worked out the details, it looks better in this vid than the original scale model:



I think I see a parking lot with a photovoltaic roof there.

EDIT: Works on foundation rafts under the main beams - site at present:

I disagree. This cathedral does not look kitschy at all and the proportions look alright as well. What I would ask is where the church has the money from for such a building but this is no worse than an equally expensive modernist building. The criticism I have is that the square in front of it seems to lack pedestrian qualities the one in the Vatican city has. The complex could also interact more with its surrounding, give how central it is located. But then the surrounding doesn't make that task easy either. Lots of huge roads and big detached blocks all around. What I don't get nonetheless is why the church is showing its back towards the city centre.

this is the Palace of the Patriarchate (1907) for example, photo taken in 2005




and this is the whole Dealul Mitropoliei (Metropolitan Church's Hill) with many other buildings:










the Romanian Patriarchal Cathedral which is small so we clearly need a new one (Iasi or Timisoara and others have bigger representative cathedrals), Bucharest didnt use to be so big:




Romania is full of all types of architecture

The Orthodox churches must have the altar oriented toward the East. Since the altar is situated in the back of the church, it means the back of the church must face to the East. Because of that it's tricky to integrate a church into the surroundings.

The last video does show better management of the pedestrian space than earlier models (and a less kitschy one - I'm talking about the crosses being transformed into lampposts now). It doesn't really look detached because it's on an island of its own, the Parliament, the apartment blocks, JW Mariott, the Ministry of Defense, and this cathedral all look like individual clusters/islands there.

It faces East because that's canon, but it fits with the orientation of its location.

Thanks for that info. Yes, that really is a challenge for urban design.

Just one more thing. Why the hell does a church need a helipad? That's madness.

The church complex includes some sort of hospital, so I guess it's for medical use. Or maybe the Patriarch doesn't like the traffic in Bucharest.

Status of the Cathedral a few days ago:



In the background there's a blessing procession.

Update:



They're waterproofing the foundation using lead plating fixed by a bituminous layer and overlayed by sand.

EDIT: LOL, almost at the same time
