This book is the first on the architecture of Kay Fisker (1893-1965), a leading exponent of DanishFunctionalism. Influenced by Louis Sullivan, Fisker had a strong belief incontinuity, putting modernism in perspective and identifying precedents. Hebuilt many large scale housing schemes, mostly for non-profit workers' housingassociations, and developed innovative and beautifully considered high-density,low-rise block schemes, which have proven useful and influential to the growingnumber of contemporary architects who have examined his designs. Beautifully illustrated with photographs and architecturaldrawings, this book documents and critically analyses three of Kay Fisker' sseminal housing projects in Copenhagen: Hornbaekhus (1923); Vestersohus (1935-39);and Dronningegarden (1943-58). These projects reflect how Fisker' s workcontains valuable lessons for contemporary architects in economy, precision andgenerosity in housing design. An introduction sets Fisker' s work within theirhistorical, social and architectural context. A final section includes in-depthcase studies of the three award-winning contemporary architects: Tony Fretton,London; Clancy Moore, Dublin and Job Floris of Monadnock, Rotterdam. The architectsexplain their projects and how these have been influenced by Fisker.
