That is amazingly cool! I'd almost start going to church just to go inside that every week.

That's Hallgrímskirkja in Reykjavik. I'm not Christian so I never attended it but I lived just behind it when I lived in Iceland.

It was designed to reflect the volcanic landscape of Iceland. And though I'm not sure if it was intentional, from the front it has the profile of many Thor's Hammer pendants from the Viking Age.

The church is also the inspiration for Valhall in Marvel's new Thor movie.

Great post, Sara!

I also like the "Techo-Gothic" title that you've invented for it.

Hello! I'm a sophomore illustration/graphic design student, and I'm doing a pretty cool series of infographics on steampunks and the steampunk subculture. I was wondering if you would be so kind as to spread a very short survey around, as I'll need as much information as I can get on this subculture.
I've also designed a series of steampunk-oriented icons, and if you're interested, I'll gladly give you full access to use them as you wish. :)

Thanks so much!
