Alongside the construction of groundbreaking public buildings, mid-century Denmark saw the design of many single-family homes based on an aesthetic focused on truth to materials, honesty in construction, and the reduction of form. The best of these homes fulfill their tasks to this day. This book is a compendium of selected buildings examined in detail, including icons such as the Utzon House by Jørn Utzon, Arne Jacobsen’s Siesby House, and the Bøgh Andersen House by Jørgen Bo and Vilhelm Wohlert. With text by Michael Sheridan, it includes new color photographs that document the buildings as well as discussions on the history of each one’s design and construction. Biographies of the architects round out the volume.
