The 2nd November issue of Building Design featured a four-page spread with my images of architect Michael Squire – partner at Squire and Partners – and his ‘Inspiration’ building. Michael picked Grundtvig’s Church in Copenhagen. Built entirely from brick, the church is an absolutely astonishing spectacle. The architect was Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint, who died before the project was complete.
