Freiburg minster

The "Freiburger Münster" (Freiburg minster, Baden-Württemberg in Germany):
Art historians from the whole world praise the "Münster unserer lieben Frau zu Freiburg" as the most completed masterpiece of the gothic at all.
[Special attention to the ultracool clock on front of it ]

I don't like Gothic architecture (British Parliament an exception), I must prefer Asian pagodas or Mosques (Taj Mahal style)

Quite an interesting revelation about this beautiful church UC :

Famed Spanish Church Lacks Permit
22 June 2007

MADRID, Spain (AP) - Antoni Gaudi's Sagrada Familia church, an unfinished Barcelona landmark that is considered a marvel of modern architecture, has lacked a construction permit for more than a century, city officials said Friday.

Gaudi first presented a design for the church in 1883 and two years later suggested changes to the blueprint. Both times he won permission.

But planning officials never responded to two later requests to change the construction plans, in 1916 and 1990. The administrative silence amounted to acquiescence, a town hall official said, confirming a report in the newspaper El Pais.

"As it is an exceptional work, it goes through other channels, different from those for normal buildings," the paper quoted another city official as saying.

Gaudi, a modernist architect known for his intricate mosaics, curvy facades and nonlinear designs, is responsible for many of Barcelona's best-known buildings.

To this day, construction continues on the church, widely considered Gaudi's masterpiece, and tourists flock to it even as scaffolding obstructs much of the interior and facade. More than 2 million did so last year.

Jordi Bonet i Armengol, the architect responsible for the most recent leg of the work, would not comment on the absence of an up-to-date construction permit. A foundation overseeing the project did not respond to requests for comment.

Barcelona is considering digging an underground tunnel for a high-speed train line near one of the entrances to the church, infuriating residents of the area.

To me, most Hindu and Jain temples, and Gothic churches seem aesthetically unpleasing and are far too "busy" - I instead prefer simpler and cleaner-looking buildings like Paris' Sacre-Coeur.

My favorites are the church in Dresden, the Blue Mosque, the Chicago bahai temple, the various ottoman-style mosques in Bosnia, and St Pauls in London.

Those temples have a lot of symbolism, and are pretty in a very detailed sort of way.
