Speaking of sunlight, I had to capture the light while visiting Bagsværd Kirke last week. Bagsværd Kirke is a church in the suburbs of Copenhagen designed by Jørn Utzon.
Ever heard of Utzon?
Well you should have!
He is the mastermind behind the iconic Sydney Opera House and one of Denmark’s most famous architects.
Completed in 1976, the church is a unique example of Scandinavian architecture at its finest. Using concrete, unfinished wood and tile the church is far from traditional, yet still evokes the ethereal and spiritual with its play of light and form. The overarching form is in the sanctuary ceiling. The Nordic light enters from the high ribbon window and swims along a series of folded concrete curves, creating beautiful contrasts and forms. Here I try to capture the intense contrasts within the space.
