accessible from both land and sea, this church proposal by spanish/swedish architecture practice NOMOstudio boasts a planned area for 20.000 people in sydhavnen, copenhagen. predominantly designed as a contemporary landmark, the architects capture the essence of a traditional church while still presenting a multidimensional place of worship.

NOMOstudio’s synhavnen church acquires a changing perspective while looking at it from different angles, just like a shape shifting geometric sculpture. in addition to its external multidimensionality, the structure should also offer spaces ‘for social and cultural activities, open 24/7’, as stated by co-founder karl johan nyqvist. indeed, the roof which would be accessible from the plaza in front of the church can be used for many church-related events — such as outdoor weddings, meditation classes, concerts etc. on the other hand, it can function as a vertical park for people to climb over and take part of the expansive sea view.
