A Warped Window in London

Surreal design might not be the first thing you think about when you consider churches from the 1700s, but London's Church of St. Martin in the Fields might surprise you with this wonderfully warped window designed by architect Shirazeh Houshiary. The original window was destroyed during the air raids of WWII and while the new design might not be what you'd expect to see in a neoclassical building, the use of thick frosted glass with a clear centerpiece is a perfect way to promote the clarity one hopes to get from prayer.

You can see more fantastic pictures of the window and read more about it over at Homes and Hues. And, if you like surreal design elements, don't miss the Mysterious Lawn Home of Frohnleiten, Austria.
