The Olsen Gang’s Big Score, The Dragon House & The Gefion Fountain

Dragehuset (The Dragon House), Bjerre Sandholmgårdsvej, Valby Copenhagen. 2010.
The house has previously been at the Swedish church in Østerbro. When the road was to be expanded in 2005 the house had to go away. It was acquired, taken down and has now been rebuilt in Valby at Carlsberg.
The house was built in 1905 and has also been used for the world exhibition in Copenhagen.

    The Dragon House is spectacular. I’ve always had a soft spot for Stave Churches and the like.

      The same goes fo me, architecture is (or can be) an art. Some of the Stave Churches from Norway (Mountain Denmark) looks great.
      I also like classic, neo classic, barok, etc. architecture.

        Oh yeah. That’s good stuff, right there. I’ve had great conversations with the Pagans who want to take the Gothic Cathedrals back and put stained glass of the Norse Gods up. That’d be for me.

      As you know, I am not religious. But I am all for protecting the architectural value of old churches. It would be great, if Thor and Odin takes over. But the most important, is to keep Jews, Muslims and others out.

        You know, it’s a funny thing. Even if I didn’t believe in the Folk Soul, I’d still be interested with Paganism… But actually embracing Heathenry taught me a lot about respecting the achievements made by Europeans through the (White) Christian Era.

        I am a protectionist at heart, too. And I think it’s difficult to understand how we are now without a grasp of what we were then.

        Also, religious architect is objectively awesome. Modern architecture is often brutalist and bleh.

      Yes, culture and religion was parallel in development and it can be hard to give and take credit in regards to religion and our accomplishment.

      Yes, “religious architect is objectively awesome”. I don’t really know where it “starts and end”, because castles might not be “religious architecture” but it is of the same time and people.

      Take my post ‘Canada’s grand railway hotels’ both Canada and USA build very awesome buildings back then and big buildings. Now they just build big (I think):
