Saint John the Divine – Carlos Mo Wu

The cathedral of Saint John the Divine is a beautiful old piece of architecture. Recently, Major Bloomberg decided to reduce the cathedral’s size to decrease traffic congestion in its surrounding. The reduction will take away most fundamental elements of architecture that were inspiring for many famous architects. This project is insulting and offensive to any cathedral around the world because if this happens, others will suffer from situations similar to this or even worse. We can definitely treat this as a danger of extinction to other Gothic styled buildings. It’s been a privilege that we still possess Gothic cathedrals that are becoming scarce. Because of the Gothic invasion, several architectural elements were introduced and explained how complex design relates to building structure. There is no excuse that can demolish such an artistic building.  Let’s save and preserve this cathedral to its very last piece of stone.
