A rather funky church in Blönduós

My husband and I traveled around the periphery of Iceland (on Ring Road) over a 9-day trip this summer. In northern Iceland, we chanced upon this rather modern-looking church in a small town called Blönduós. I have always been fascinated by the clean designs from Scandinavia and chancing upon this church in an otherwise nondescript town was one of those moments you live for on a road trip. A little research on the church gave the following details: the striking architecture was the idea of a local architect from a nearby farm who drew her inspirations from the surrounding landscape, including volcanic craters.
