Roskilde

Roskilde Dom brick.jpg

I was searching for a decent photo of Kaare Klint’s memorials for Christian X of Denmark and his wife, having been struck by their warm simplicity as part of a display in the National Design Museum in Copenhagen, but can’t find anything quite right on the internet.

Instead I came across these images of other chapels in Roskilde Cathedral. It’s now on my list to visit when I go back to Denmark. Fascinatingly, it was the first brick Gothic structure and dates from 12th century in parts, although it looks so much more modern it’s easy to see how it influenced styles of the 1920s.
