Architecture trip to Copenhagen(8)

Grundtvig's Church made by Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint after he won a competition in 1913. In 1921 started the build and in 1926 the tower section was completed.
Further work on the interior and on adjacent buildings continued until 1940 and was completed by Klint's son Kaare Klint after his father's death in 1930.
The triple-aisled hall church is 76m (259 ft) long in total and 35m (115 ft) wide; the nave has a height of 22 m(72 ft).
The church contains lot of daring brick details and the style is called expressionist church architecture. ( All details from wikipedia here.)
Of course there is a Votive ship and it is nearly the only kind of sober decoration that I could find in this Lutheran church.

  1. Daring, to be sure. But strikes me as bit too much about the man than the Creator.

  4. Lovely church. I like how the end walls of the buildings are the same shape in the first picture. And the third picture is a heavenly gorgeous.
