A+u 17:07, 562: Melancholy & Dwelling - Contemporary Houses in Denmark (Paperback)
-Contemporary houses in Denmark, including projects from LETH & GORI, Primus Architects, and ADEPT, are featured in a+u 17:07 Contemporary Houses in Denmark are featured in a+u 17:07 and the architectural traditions of the country are presented through 17 residential projects. The mood and lifestyle of the Danish people are combined into a theme of Melancholy, representing a thoughtful and pensive approach to life. Projects that engage the greyscale climate and horizontal landscape of Denmark are becoming rare as new designs are removed from their local context. Each featured house responds to the surrounding environment and this has influenced the design. Projects from LETH & GORI, Primus Architects, and ADEPT express how current Danish architects respond to nature and context in their work. Text in English and Japanese.
