The church of coffee

Well, it's not a church, it's a Starbucks, but don't you think this building looks just like a church? I'm convinced the architects of the Mill Creek Town Center got their inspiration from the many churches with bell towers that grace the plazas of countless European towns. There are no bells in this tower, just the Starbucks logo though! Thats why I call it the church of coffee. It has many followers too.

Bueno, no es una iglesia sino un Starbucks, pero no crees que este edificio parece más bien una iglesia? Estoy convencido que los arquitectos del Mill Creek Town Center se inspiraron en las numerosas iglesias con sus campanarios que ocupan las plazas de innumerables ciudades europeas. En este campanario no hay campanas, sólo el logo de Starbucks. Por eso le llamo la iglesia del café. Tiene muchos seguidores por cierto.

  1. Si los arqueólogos del sigo 50 pensaran que era uno de los cultos de esta época, no irían mut desencaminados (estupendo dibujo, como siempre)

  2. Curioso, de facto. Estive algum tempo a olhar para o desenho. Muito bem resolvido.

  3. I am one of the followers of the church of coffee. Not a morning goes by without me paying homage to a freshly brewed cup. On sacred days I indulge in a latte or cappuccino. Superb drawing as always!

  4. Yes, that Starbucks could easily fit into any Italian village! (I'm also one of the coffee flock!)
