PUBLICATIONS 2009 LE CORBUSIER’S VILLA SHODHAN In the 1950’s Le Corbusier designed a number of buildings in India. Villa Shodhan - the last building that he constructed – is built in 1957 in Ahmedabad, Gujarath. As a privately owned home it has been protected from fame and only few have been granted access to this fantastic house, the last villa to be designed by Le Corbusier. The book is written by the Indian architect Manisha Shodan Basu, who is related to the inhabitants of the villa. The book is a thorough examination of the large and complicated building in which Corbusier makes use of all his experience with house

and building, at the same time adjusting them to the local conditions like climate, building tradition and family relations.

SUSTAINABLE COMPACT CITY Our cities grow and spread loosely and incoherently out into the landscapes. The EU Commission is therefore looking for models for a more concentrated and sustainable urban development. On this background, the Centre for Strategic Urban Research and Realdaina Research have carried out a development project on sustainable, compact buildings in Denmark. ‘Sustainable Compact City’ is a result of this project. The book illustrates how, on the one hand, it is possible to gain environmental advantages by compact, dense and mixed building with low resource consumption and high floor space ratio, and on the other to satisfy the demands for modern housing and office building to have good daylight conditions, a desirable location and access to good recreational areas. The concept of ’compact city’ is illustrated through model studies of building types with high floor space ratios, and casestudie proposals designed for specific areas in the Northern Harbour of Copenhagen and in Kolding. In addition to spatial and urban qualities, wind, light and energy conditions are studied in the compact buildings.

The book nudges customary ideas about density and provides material for a discussion of how to build. Poul Bæk Pedersen a.o. 144 pages, 22 x 27,50 cm Softcover, richly illustrated ISBN 9788790979232 (Danish/English edition) Aarhus School of Architecture Price: 152 DKK excl. VAT

CARTHOGRAPHY MORPHOLOGY TOPOLOGY In 2004 a Summer School was established on the Greek island Hydra by architect Cort Ross Dinesen, lecturer at the Institute of Building Culture, the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and architect Claus Peder Pedersen, lecturer at Aarhus School of Architecture. It was to be the basis of research-based morphological and topological studies, which have since taken place for 4 weeks a year. Starting with Hydra’s topography different ways of considering topology were developed. The work was approached from a new angle every year through a series of associated questions, resulting in an extensive body of drawings describing the various discourses raised. The drawings were developed in cooperation with architecture students and this work has subsequently been followed up with a number of articles unfolding and reflecting on this research.

the danish architectural press

The book describes the development of cabinetmaking and its importance for the Danish furniture design as well as the international and modern perspective that characterized the period leading up to the 1920s with their functionalism and more puritanical outlook. It tells the story of a previously neglected section of our common cultural history, which had a powerful impact on the entire 20th century. Therefore the book also draws lines to current home design and furniture. The book is written and structured as a reference book and contains more than 700 illustra-

tions, including new photograps, a wealth of beautiful drawings and informative captions. Easy to read.

CHAIRS’ TECTONIC Danish furniture design reflects a culture that lives on largely in unspoken knowledge. A considerable portion of the architect’s specialized expertise that has become embedded in the art of furniture design has not been systematically organized or written down but has rather been handed down from master to apprentice through this specialized area’s extraordinary culture of “crafts apprenticeship.” This book is aimed at making some portion of the concepts and insights that have been bearing notions for modern furniture design come alive and is simultaneously aimed at making them more comprehensible and accessible and bringing them up to date, with an eye toward sharpening future design competence within the profession.

The present publication want to contribute to a more delicately nuanced understanding of the complex of artistic problems which has preoccupied, has been formulated and has been handled by several of the creators of the twentieth century’s impressive international furniture successes.

APPROACH THE COAST Our coasts are a pivotal issue in the climate debate. Increased water level means major physical changes. Approach the Coast unfolds a wide range of approaches to the coast. From architectural proposals to developing specific localities in both Denmark and Europe into conceptual contributions that more abstractly circle around the coast as concept and metaphor. Approach the Coast gives a multifarious and varied picture of the coast as phenomenon, as specific locality, and as architectural potential. This is done through student projects, methodological and educational presentations and research-related texts and projects. The localities include Blokhus, the Tønder Marsh, Mandø, the Harbour of Copenhagen, Dover, and Rügen – each with its distinctive geographical and topological features.

The book is the result of a combined research and educational course at the Department of Architecture, Aarhus School of Architecture.

A New Nature

A NEW NATURE - 9 architectural conditions between liquid and solid


»Many would, in looking at this dense world of objects they see around them, see a new ‘nature’, which is just as irrational, incomprehensible and ruthless as the original nature.« Willy Ørskov The preliminary condition for this work is a world where architecture manifests itself in disperse organizations rather than as representations of a common order. The city and the cultural landscape are degrees of order, brought forth by the interference of countless different systems. The book documents and comments on the construction of the nine architectural conditi-

ons between the fluid and the firm, which will subsequently be developed into chains and narratives transpiring within the Composite world.

THE ARCHITECT FINN JUHL Finn Juhl was one of Denmark’s most original furniture designers. At the triennials in Milan in the 1950s he received no fewer than five gold medals, and it was also during this era that he won world renown for his furniture. As an interior designer, Finn Juhl achieved international acclaim with his interior designs for the UN Headquarter in New York, and as an exhibition architect he created the big exhibitions of Danish craft and design abroad that helped establish the concept of “Danish Design”. This classic book on Finn Juhl was authored by writer Esbjørn Hiort, who was a close personal friend of Finn Juhl’s. Thus, the book draws a well-rounded portrait of this furniture

designer, who was one of the leading figures behind the development of the concept of Danish Design. The book is published in both a Danish and an English edition. It was originally published in 1990.

NEW SINGLE-FAMILY HOUSES – New Nordic The book presents and comments on a selection of new Nordic single-family houses including custom-built homes, pre-fab houses and examples of existing homes that have been renovated and expanded. The main emphasis is on Danish examples, but Nordic architecture is characterised by many common features, including the desire to adapt houses to match the landscape and surroundings, which makes comparisons inspiring and relevant. Our approach to constructing single-family houses springs from a long-standing tradition and a unique culture. The book presents several historical examples of this, including recently renovated and listed bungalows from the 1950s and 1960s as

well as detached houses from the same period designed by the leading architects of the time. More recent examples include houses designed by Tham & Videgård, Cornelius & Wöge, Mads Møller, Martina Eriksson, Valbæk Brørup, Merete Lind Mikkelsen and others.

Centre for Industrialised Architecture

The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture



The book ”Three Ways of Assembling a House” is based on the research project: “Architectural Quality, User Requirements and Mass Customisation in Industrial Building Systems”. The research was carried out by CINARK – Centre for Industrialised Architecture at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Copenhagen. The book takes a look at the implementation of industrialised building systems in the scandinavian building practice of today - a field which is still in development and therefore in need of an architectonic discussion of what course it should take. The Scandinavian construction industry is characterised by high quality craftsmanship, but also by an array of highly industrialised, but not always coordinated, building systems. This book aims to shed some light on these

systems and their underlying concepts. By looking at both the systems themselves, the way they are produced and the business models behind them, the systems and concepts are assessed in their broader organisational context and not just as physical manifestations of their design intentions. The book aims to inspire the development of new industrialised solutions that go hand in hand with architectural ingenuity.

URBAN PROSPECTS Professor Erik Christian Sørensen has been working on URBAN PROSPECTS for the last 4 years. The book contains 10 essays, which analyze towns and urban elements written with the author’s personal angle. All of them have significant meaning for the articulation of architecture. In ”Poetik til bygningskunst” (Poetics in Architecture) Erik Christian Sørensen experimented with a specific way of writing, where every single sentence becomes a strong and condensed statement about the elements in architecture. In URBAN PROSPECTS he has refined this way of writing. Every sentence is very tightly phrased and you can expect these statements to be as frequently quoted as was the case with Poetics in Architecture. The book is in English and is illustrated with

a large number of photos and drawings, all of them done by the author. The illustrations are all from the author’s studies in numerous European countries.

ARCHITECTURE BODY AND SPACE Danish language only The book focuses on architecture as a setting for exercise and other physical activities, especially the softer types of workout such as yoga, pilates, gymnastics, dance and other forms of exercise that appeal to many women in particular. These activities often take place in gyms and other settings that are not designed for the purpose, and several studies have demonstrated the need to take a different approach to physical exercise to make it appealing and pleasant to exercise and stay fit – for both sexes! The book’s intended readership includes architects and

decision-makers involved in the construction and renovation of facilities for softer types of workouts.

THE ARCHITECTS’ OWN HOMES – in the architects’ own words Danish language only

Arkitekternes egne boliger -med arkitekternes egne ord Mogens Stærk og Kirsten Grønborg Arkitektskolens Forlag

The book is based on what architects have said about their own homes. An architect’s home often reflects contemporary or future ideals for residential architecture. Thus, we gain insight into the architects’ ideals and dreams concerning residential architecture and see how these dreams and ideals have been addressed and expressed, often over a long lifespan. What architectural trends do the homes reflect, and to what extent do they meet the users’ varying needs – from youth to old age?
