Grundtvig’s Church is a famous church in Copenhagen, Denmark, that’s known as a rare example of expressionist church architecture. French photographer Ludwig Favre shot a series of photos that capture the beautiful lines of the giant vaulted ceilings. You can see more of his images on Instagram and Behance.
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.
