Exercise 16: Exploring function

I chose a tiny church in a rural community in Iceland for this exercise.  It is used by local people who live on their farms and freeholds spread across miles of countryside.  It serves as a small centre for folks to come together to worship, share stories and to sing.  The building needs to be very weather-hardy but welcoming.  Attractive but not flamboyant to suit the Lutheran doctrines of the area, although this denomination is rooted in traditional Catholicism.  The series of pictures I took serves to demonstrate the location of the church and how it can hold a good crowd of hearty singers.  Seems to be functioning wonderfully!
