An impressive monograph portraying a vital founder of Danish Modern in architecture and his legacy up to the present day: Vilhelm Lauritzen.

Vilhelm Lauritzen (1894-1984) was one of Denmark’s most significant architects of his time and one of the most important developers of Danish modernism. Today, a number of his projects remain precursory examples of a new and revolutionary architecture where form follows function. Vilhelm Lauritzen’s approach was all about usability. An example is the first airport terminal in Copenhagen from the 1930’s when there was no airport design typology. As a functionalist, he divided the building into airside and landside; entrance and traffic along the building on landside with aviation and gates following airside. Still today, this design remains predominant of the airports around the world.

This book tells the story of the Danish wellfare state and it’s modernistic architecture told through the story of Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects the last 100 years. Written by the author of Finn Juhl. Life, Work, World (Strandberg Publishing and Phaidon 2018/2019).
