Housing Copenhagen

A new translation of a leading architect’s magnum opus.
Housing Copenhagen is primarily the translation of leading Danish modern architect Kay Fisker’s Kobenhavske Bolygtyper, maintaining the original layout along with drawings and diagrams. The text illustrates the main features of Fisker’s architecture and describes the cultural context within which the exploration of housing types was conducted. The systematic approach, the richness of selected examples, as well as the analytic content, make this book valuable beyond its historic and geographic limits. Due to a renewed interest in the field of housing, the translation will provide students and professionals with a clear and useful instrument for housing design from an architectural and urban perspective.
