Item description for Henning Larsen: The Architect's Studio by Kjeld Vindum, Peter Davey & Kjeld Kjeldsen...
The ability to capture the spirit of a time, while still maintaining a sense of continuity, is emblematic of much great modern architecture. The projects created by Henning Larsen are no exception. Using a contemporary and sophisticated formal language, Larsen and his studio have succeeded in extracting the essence of the new and in translating it into a consistent and convincing architectural idiom. His strength lies in simplification of form and function, evident in his use of archetypal elements and themes such as the house-within-a-house and the internal street. Brought to international acclaim with his design for the Foreign Ministry building in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in the early 80s, Larsen's most recent works include Christiansbro and the Danish Design Center, both located in Copenhagen.
