Trekroner Church by Rørbæk and Møller
Alexander Zaxarov
Jul 13, 2020

Rørbæk and Møller Architects have designed Trekroner Church with a modern expression of organic forms and a balanced interaction between interior and exterior.

The decoration is based on the fact that integrated art in the architecture and in the functions of the church, often has been the case with church buildings throughout history. Typically, churches are highly ornate, so the sight of one built in a brutalist style can be surprising.

The floor is laid in handcrafted bricks, which creates a special pattern created by the use of a pentagon bricks specially made for the occasion. There is a specific pentagon that can form a surface discovered by mathematicians in 2016 at Washington University in Seattle. A whole new geometry, which is paired with a material and technique used for floors in Danish churches from the Middle Ages as well as in the most ancient churches in the Levant.
