With this book we continue reprinting in hardcover book format the issues of the 2G Architecture Review
that have been out of print. Arne Jacobsen
(1902-1971), better known for his prominent career as a designer of furniture and objects than as an architect, is the ultimate proponent of the modern movement in Denmark. Though he was a master of using traditional materials and textures within a modern vernacular, Jacobsen was also interested in industrial buildings and new technologies. His public buildings followed the same criteria of simplicity, order, utility and harmony as all his other projects. However, in his public architecture, Jacobsen also added the discipline inherent in standardisation and use of industrial components.
