The Architectural Sketches of Henning Larsen

The architect Henning Larsen (1925-2013) thought through his drawings during his entire life. He was always drawing and even had a little sketchpad installed on the dashboard of his car. He used drawings to develop all his architectural designs, from small houses to universities as big as a whole city, but he also drew continuously as a method of perception, and not only of architectural spaces.

Henning Larsen didn’t talk much. He communicated his thoughts to associates and clients through drawings, which is why the drawings are a source of both the depth and width of his work.

Thousands of sketches and drawings have been preserved, but only a few of them have been published. This book presents a wider range than ever before, from tiny visual notes to artistic experiments that led to new architectural designs.

The author, Merete Arnfeldt-Mollerup, is an architect and PhD.
