ART OF MANY

ART OF MANY

by Red. Kristoffer Lindhardt Weiss og Boris Brorman Jensen
320 DKK

A presentation of more than 130 new Danish architectural projects– with images, drawings and informative texts.

The book ‘Art of Many - the Right to Space’ presents more than 130 contemporary Danish architectural projects in images, drawings and informative texts. The works have been carefully selected by the architect Boris Brorman Jensen and philosopher Kristoffer Lindhardt Weiss, who have been appointed by the Danish Architecture Centre to write the book and curate the official Danish contribution to the 15th International Architecture Biennale 2016 in Venice. It is the first time in many years that such a deep look into recent Danish architecture (2000 - ) comes out as a printed book. Not just as a catalogue featuring the exhibition models but also as independent documentation with many interviews and essays. Art of Many is the story about how a welfare society works closely together with a broad range of architects:

‘Danish architecture is not primarily characterized by prestigious projects and architectural beacons towering above the anonymity of standardized, mass-produced buildings. Danish architecture is
characterized by a very high general level. It is art for a large audience.’
Weiss/Brorman

Richly illustrated. English language edition.
