Mikael Agricola Church Tower in Helsinki, Finland

Mikael Agricolan Kirkko was built in 1935 and is located in the heavily-populated neighborhood of Punavuori or the Red Mountain district. The most interesting feature of the Mikael Agricola Church is this 318 foot tower. The 98 foot copper spire can be lowered into the base. The church’s design by Lars Sonck is called Functionalism. This architectural style was developed in Finland during the 1920s and became popular in the Nordic countries during the 1930s. The concept is based on simplicity of form.
