(CNN)The marvels of modern architecture abound around the world. There’s a building that looks like a banknote in Lithuania, a building called the “friendly alien” in Austria, and now, a church shaped like a high-heeled shoe in Taiwan.

The church, a tinted blue glass structure, is 55 feet tall at the top of the heel, and 36 feet wide. Based on that and guessing it’s roughly 75-80 feet from toe to heel, we’ll call it a size 880.
