A new church in Taiwan is shaped like a glass slipper to attract more women.
When it comes to crazy stuff (but especially Asian architecture), Asia never disappoints me. Most of the craziness I see comes straight out Japan, but I guess Taiwan has been getting a little jealous and wanted in on the hot-messiness of it all.
A church in Taiwan recently built a 55-foot high glass slipper to try and attract more wedding photo business. The shoe cost the church over half a million dollars to build and is constructed of 320 tinted glass panels. Can we just back up and talk about the fact that building a run-of-the-mill house with basic tiles in central New Jersey costs about the same? It seems like the Cinderella Slipper Church made a smart business move.

The administrator, Pan Tseui-ping, came up with the idea and stated that, “There will be 100 female-oriented features in the church like maple leaves, chairs for lovers, biscuits and cakes. It will be tailored to women, especially female tourists visiting the area.” Is anyone else wondering what exactly about maple leaves is female-oriented?
I have seen some oddly shaped buildings in the past, but this is the first shoe-shaped one I have come across. What do you think? Would you pay to have your wedding in front of a giant high heel shoe? Would you take Christ into your life into the Cinderella Slipper Church?
