Behold the Buddhist Temple Inspired by Keanu Reeves

True story: famous people sometimes inspire architecture and interiors. But Keanu Reeves? Really? Apparently so; today Feel Guide offers a profile of the Wat Rong Khun contemporary Buddhist temple in Chiang Rai, Thailand, which broke ground in 1997 and will be done some 100 years from now. Outside, the temple is most certainly arresting; inside, acclaimed Thai artist Chalermchai Kositpipat (who's played a hand in the overall design of the building) has painted scenes inspired by Predator, Spiderman, Batman, Superman, Avatar, and, of course, Keanu Reeves’ character in The Matrix. Genius never dies!
