UN Ceiling: View 2

Miquel Barcelo - Ceiling (2008)Here's another view of Miquel Barcelo's ghastly £15m UN ceiling which I carped about on Wednesday (CLICK). How the fat cats live! King Juan Carlos of Spain is reported to have praised the ceiling as "doubtless creative beauty". Surely he meant "doubtful creative beauty". A lick of whitewash would have looked smarter at a fraction of the cost. Apparently the notion behind this mess was to create the illusion of a cavern. Try the interior of Westminster Cathedral in London for awesome, spine-tingling, cavernous architecture. You don't need to be Catholic to rubber-neck.
