Also funny to see that when you take a distance, the block with the clock gables in the mid-right is not that different from the other blocks. From that viewpoint traditionalism and expressionism are reduced to a decorative shell.

That's also the case in the residential cityblocks from that era in Amsterdam. In urban sense they all follow the same urban plan and are more or less the same. This picture below shows Plan Zuid (plan south) from Amsterdam. There is traditional design, 'new objectivity', as well as Amsterdam School, but the large housingblocks make it all kind of blend together.


I had a thought about that before. And I think that's why it became a kind of forgotten style. Modernism became the great inspiration for modern architecture and it wasn't traditional enough to be it's counterpart.

The wikipedia page about brick expressionism brought me to Peder Wilhelm Jensen Klint
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peder_Vilhelm_Jensen-Klint
An architect from Copenhagen.

Most of his works seem to be rather traditional but with a twist. Picture below is the Grundvig Memorial Church in Copenhagen and the plan includes the surrounding residential plan. https://maps.google.com/maps?q=loc:5...06968&t=h&z=18
Quit dramatic picture



Saint Anna Church

Foundational stonelaying of the St. Anna Chuch, I just couldn't resist posting this picture

Fredenskirke (peace church)

Gedser Church




Not to be condescending, but to me but this architect seems to me to be a bit of an one trick pony. He also isn't thát expressionistic, I actually did not post interior pictures because those are rather traditional and, though maybe interesting, I thought they would distract from the topic. But at the same time very much not really traditional.
All pictures from wikimedia commons

I agree. Grundvig Memorial Church looks great and it also looks like his magnum opus, with everything else looking like bleaker copies. The mix between expressionism and gothic is interesting though.

Astonishing. Especially on first photo...impressive.
