CONTEMPORARY COPENHAGEN. Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects
For almost a century, Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects has aimed to make the Danish capital a better city to live in. The studio strives for a design that transcends time and manages a constantly changeable reality, and is behind many of the most notable contemporary community buildings in Copenhagen, such as the Danish Radio House, Copenhagen Airport, the Krøyers Plads residential district, New North Zealand Hospital, and DR Byen, headquarters of the Danish Broadcasting Corporation. The conviction held by the studio’s founder, Vilhelm Theodor Lauritzen (1894–1984), that “architecture is applied art for the people – never a privilege for the few”, lives on in its projects today.
