Mortensrud Kirke

December 08, 2008

I quite like the light that comes in this church (by Jan Olav Jensen and Børre Skodvin) as a result of the gaps in mortar... At least, I think that's how the light is coming in. And, if that's the case... what keeps the cold air/weather/bugs out?
Initially, the first two images reminded be of Studio Gang's Starlight Theatre, but when I looked up the built photos, I guess I was just remembering the model. Either way, the ambient light, simple forms, and exposed structure in this church are quite beautiful and I imagine it emits a lovely glow into the woods at night.
