Hallgrimskirkja modernist church

Hallgrimskirkja is both an Evangelical-Lutheran parish church and a national sanctuary in Iceland. The Icelandic parliament accounced in 1929 that they were to be responsible for the church being built. Guðjón Samúelsson began working on the design in 1937. Inspiration came from the Islandic landscape with mountains and soaring glaciers. Construction on the church began in 1945 and worked progressed until completion in 1986.
