DAY 15: TEMPPELIAUKIO KIRKKO (ROCK CHURCH)

The Lutheran ‘Rock Church’ is built inside of a massive block of natural granite

Periscope!

Sorbet streetscapes surround the church

Going into the bat cave…

Amazing use of colour and finishes

The church & sometimes concert hall  was designed by Architects and brothers Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen

The massive dome roof, made entirely of copper wire

The copper facade creates amazing light & colour play

Just near these candles, there is a natural spring which trickles down the rock face

  1. wow, that church is phenomenal! Cooler than the ‘Steinhof’ one in Vienna so don’t be too sad about missing that! 🙂
