Grundtvigs Kirke is 6km outside the city center. It's only a 20 minute ride on your bike. It is quite worth seeing. I had the impression this was a very old church, so I was shocked to find it was only completed in the 1940s. It is the prized Danish example of Brick Expressionism, a movement of architecture in the 1920s largely explored in Germany and the Netherlands. Brick Expressionist architecture is known for its elaborate use of brickwork as ornamentation. This movement was a subset to the broader Expressionist movement that explored formal innovation inspired by objects and nature. The Danish architect of this church was Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint. The form of this building was inspired by the pipe organs of a church. The pure back drop of sky and formal symmetry of the site plan makes it a captivating site.
The space within is absolutely stunning. The purity in material and color accentuates the volume of the space. The light is amplified by the subtle warmth of the brick. My iphone camera certainly does not do it justice.
