Favourite Design / Building:
On a recent trip to Copenhagen I visited the Bagsværd Church, designed by Jørn Utzon. Whilst the understated simplicity of its exterior looks closer to an agricultural building than a church, inside, one is immersed into a sanctuary. The spectacular undulating roof illuminates the main congregation space with natural light.
