The sixth tallest structure and the largest place of worship in Iceland is the Lutheran church Hallgrímskirkja. Built between 1945 and 1986, it is named for Hallgrímur Pétursson, a poet and pastor known for writing the Passion Hymns. The distinctive sweeping curves of the front tower are meant to reflect shapes found in the volcanic landscape surrounding Reykjavík. Bruno Kurth built this microscale version.

This microscale creation was part of a huge collaborative display by European LEGO builders. Conceived by Tobias Reichling and Bruno Kurth, five builders constructed a huge (fifteen square meters) LEGO map of Europe and twenty different people contributed forty-four microscale versions of famous European landmarks.
