Architect Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint created the plans for the church, named after the Danish philo­sopher and pastor Nikolai Frederik Severin Grundtvig. For his project, Klint studied a large number of Danish village churches, drawing inspi­ration from their tradi­tional archi­tecture, building materials and decoration. In Grundtvig’s church, he finally combined the modern, geometric forms of brick expres­sionism with the classic up-and-coming lines of the Gothic.
