GD #4 TRADITION & CRISIS is a source of architectonic inspiration. It demonstrates how the modern Danish architectural tradition continues in a time characterised by a historical financial and architectural crisis. The book features architecture within the following typologies: housing, sports buildings, culture buildings, educational and public buildings. The projects featured are created by Danish architectural firms such as BBP Arkitekter, Entasis, Gottlieb Paludan Arkitekter, KHR Arkitekter, and Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects.
In addressing the influence of tradition and what is identified as the tradition in Danish architecture, the authors of this new title consider the many typologies of architecture in the work of some 15 distinguished Danish practices including: BIG Bjarke Ingels Group, Utzon Arkitekter, Wohlert Arkitekter, Vandkunsten, Entasis, Henning Larsen Architects, and Friis & Moltke arkitekter. Arguably unique, certainly authoritative, this book offers a penetrating contribution, to understanding the historical development of Danish Architecture.
