Grundtvig Memorial Church

I adore Jensen-Klint’s detailing for the brickwork in his design of the Grundtvig’s Church.

The interior is inspired by Gothic architecture with its verticality and is juxtaposed with the lack of ornamentation using single uncut brick adhering to the minimalist modern aesthetic. The use of yellow brick – a Danish vernacular material – brings a sense of familiar and warmth to the Danes. This interior remains fresh whilst having the ability to transcend time.

I am embarrassed to say I never visited this church when I was in Copenhagen – maybe next time.
