A new perspective on one of Denmark’s greatest architects told through his marvellous drawings.
Architect Henning Larsen (1925-2013) was a virtuoso illustrator with an unusual attention to detail in observing his surroundings. He was drawing constantly. To him, drawing was a way of collecting his thoughts, a method that made him understand his work deeply. This book presents a selection of his drawings and portrays how he developed both professionally and personally from the young, dreaming, and curious architect to a committed and open-minded leader of a large architectural practice. The drawings tell the story of the personal journey of an architect and about working with architecture before everything became digitalised.
