Did you know that Monday, October 2nd was World Architecture Day? Probably not many people realized this, but one thing is sure: the people who run the Twitter accounts of several of the world’s cathedrals took it very seriously.
RelevantMagazine.com reports that, to commemorate World Architecture Day, St. Paul’s Cathedral in London sent out a tweet:
Today is #WorldArchitectureDay.— St Paul's Cathedral (@StPaulsLondon) October 2, 2017
The Cathedrals of England have got this well covered!#DropsMic pic.twitter.com/f1k18e0Ui2
The Twitter account of St. Paul’s tagged several other cathedrals, but left out Coventry Cathedral which soon sent out their own tweet:
Realistically though, who else had the moon.....?! 🌒 pic.twitter.com/zSPCOgbYiu— Coventry Cathedral (@CovCathedral) October 3, 2017
Then Exeter Cathedral decided to join the battle to be the best:
Just the one moon though. We've got quite a few (and don't start @Nrw_Cathedral on dinosaurs...) pic.twitter.com/EV84qd4Yac— Exeter Cathedral (@ExeterCathedral) October 3, 2017
St. Paul’s couldn’t let the discussion rest there, however, tweeting out:
But do you have a way of getting to your moons? You can borrow our space rocket if you like. 🚀 pic.twitter.com/NCUDr6bCVR— St Paul's Cathedral (@StPaulsLondon) October 3, 2017
Several other cathedrals also joined the Twitter battle, including York Minster, Ely, Lincoln, and Winchester.
Which cathedral do you think has the best architecture?
