Hallgrímskirkja ( Icelandic pronunciation: [ˈhatlkrimsˌcʰɪrca] , church of Hallgrímur ) is a Lutheran ( Church of Iceland ) parish church in Reykjavík , Iceland . At 73 metres high (244 ft), it is the largest church in Iceland and among the tallest structures in Iceland .  The church is named after the Icelandic poet and clergyman Hallgrímur Pétursson (1614-1674), author of the Passion Hymns . 
It was designed by the late Guðjón Samuel in 1937, who was often inspired in his endeavours by the fascinating shapes and forms created when lava cools into basalt rock. Construction of the church began in 1945 and ended in 1986, with the tower completed long before the rest of the building. The crypt beneath the choir was consecrated in 1948, the steeple and wings completed in 1974 and the nave consecrated in 1986.
