Untold Stories is a retelling of the architectural history of the 20th century, bringing forward untold stories of the women who have worked in Danish architecture. The book introduces a new view on Danish Modernism by celebrating the skills and knowledge of the women of the period. Whereas books on Danish architecture history traditionally focus on a small group of men and their work on canonical buildings, this book re-explores the period from 1930-1980 by shedding light on a number of women, who are otherwise rarely mentioned – women who nevertheless contributed greatly to shaping Danish cities and landscapes, as well as the architecture of the modern Danish welfare state.
