Trips to Famous Buildings – Mosfellskirkja Church

Iceland Church - Rendering - OUTSIDE VIEW_1

The past few posts have been devoted to religious architecture so I thought that I would chose to profile a religious building that really stood out for me. We travel to Iceland to find this church in the town of Mosfellskirkja, a small village outside of Reykjavik. It was built in the 1960s but the design was so modern that it still is current today. The roofline defines the building sloping upward towards the heavens. I decided to model the building in Revit to better understand how it was built as well as designing an adjoining Sunday school building to compliment the existing structure on the site. I could find no interior shots of the church so I had to guess what it must look like taking my own liberties with the interior design. Hope you like it.
