This is one of the most unusually designed churches you’ll ever come across. Completed by Jørn Utzon (also the architect of the Sydney Opera House) in 1976, the white concrete exterior looks like a non-event, while all the visual drama is contained inside. Once through the doors, the effect is reminiscent of being in a cave—illuminated by hidden glass panels in the roof, the light bounces off the undulating white, pre-cast concrete walls, and white tile floor. In keeping with the soft palette, the pews and organ are done in bleached wood with no ornate details. Overall, the effect is incredibly soothing, the birch tree-covered landscape outside doesn’t hurt either.
