Indistinct architecture

The Age of the Megachurch: An interesting look at how some modern churches look and feel more secular than sacred. (via DYL)

I can see the point behind this photo essay; if churches don't evoke awe or inspiration, something seems to be lost in experiencing God. I'm obviously not talking about churches/church plants that meet in rented facilities but rather churches that have the option of starting from scratch. What does church architecture seem to look like nowadays? Is there the sense that when we are on holy ground, we are moved by the wonder of Christ's body on earth and that we are lost to the transcendence of God's presence with and among us?
