Occult Architecture in Utrecht

The search for (invisible) (occult) patterns in the landscape that somehow control our mind is a standard form of enlightened paranoia in peasant psychogeographical writing about urban space: Iain Sinclair and his Hawksmoor churches, the London Psychogeographical Association and the alignment of Canary Wharf with a ley line...

The medieval part of Utrecht had its own occult artefact: five churches (of which three are still standing) forming a cross.  Of course so-called historians (read: Illuminati double-agents) have sought to discredit the idea by claiming the shape to be a coincidence. It does explain why this city is such a hotbed for cartographic revolt.
