location Copenhagen
function church
contributed by HelleBeelden

Known as the largest public Evangelical Lutheran church in Scandinavia, Grundtvig's Church (Grundtvigskirken in Danish) was built as a national monument for N.F.S. Grundtvig (1783-1872), a Danish philosopher and social reformer. Building commenced in 1921, but main architect Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint died in 1930. He was succeeded by his son Kaare Klint and later his grandson Esben Klint, who completed the church in 1940. Its design is a combination between a cathedral and the style of old Danish country houses. The yellow brickwork church stands 50 metres high, which makes it a landmark that can be seen from afar.

The church is a gem with eccentric edges, it is the Sagrada Familia of Copenhagen. There are other connections of inspiration after my visit in 2011 - this is my review: http://artswise.blogspot.hk/2012/08/jensen-klint-grundtvigs-church-and.html

I was there this summer, and talked to someone who lived there from the day he was born. He told me the church is build up out of 6.000.000 bricks and all the bricks that were not beautiful enough for the church, we used to create the whole residential areau around the church..
