Neue dänische Architektur – New Danish Architecture (Verlag Gerd Hatje, 1968) by Tobias Faber gives a comprehensive presentation of postwar architecture in Denmark.
For centuries, Danish architects have shown fine critical instinct and intelligent restraint in adapting foreign influences to the landscape, climate, way of life, and indigenous artifacts of their country (…) This is the background against which Danish architectural historian Tobias Faber presents his analysis and evaluation of postwar Danish architecture, from sing-e family dwellings to city planning. He shows carious developments an their outstanding exponents. Kay Fisker and the traditional architectural orientation, Arne Jacobsen and the functional style that has contributed so much to the high reputation of Danish architecture today, and Jørn Utzon, designer of the controversial Sydney Opera House, the most important Danish representative of the present dynamic and organic concept of architecture.
