Title: The Church of Capitalism

Keywords: Consumerism, Cathedral, Competition

Description: This collage has the old, byzantine-inspired Church of Westminster blended into the modern commercial building, Cardinal Place, opposite it. The old church offers a space to seek peace and forgiveness while the building opposite it is a venue which leads people on the path of greed and sometimes, even gluttony. The old church now has to compete for patronage and attention with the new Cardinal Place. While the old church is asking for donations to keep it functioning, the new commercial space is fueled by the excess of the consumers. Will the visitors to Westminster get charmed by the history and heritage emanating from the church or get lured into the black hole of capitalism and consumerism?
