incredible brick church.

Saturday 21 May 2011

This is the Grundtvig Church in Copenhagen, Denmark. This stunning church is constructed entirely from brick, including the walls, floor and vaulted ceiling.

I love how this project explores the potentials of bricks. The bricks are so sculptural and luminous. By limiting itself to the one material, the space is minimalist but also texturally ornate. 

When I was studying, I used to have a serious aversion to brick. My my, haven't I changed my tune?

Special thanks to Stephen for sending these holiday happy snaps to my inbox.
