The first comprehensive framing and treatment of the most important new development in Danish architecture of the 2000s.

The pragmatic turn in Danish architecture in the 2000s is one of the most striking new trends in international architecture in the past decade, and it has attracted considerable interest around the world.
The architectural firms represented in the book include BIG, jds, Cobe, Transform, Nord, Effekt, Adept, among others. Although these firms do easily fit into one single category or can be said to make up a unified movement, their projects do have certain significant features in common. These commonalities have led international media to view these projects as part of a common trend and a new phenomenon in Danish architecture.

The book aims to examine and describe this new phenomenon. Through interviews, essays and presentations of the architects and their works in words and images, the book illustrates how these young Danish architectural firms were able to gain a foothold on the Danish as well as the international architectural scene in the early part of the 21st century.

The book is not only aimed at architects but also at a wider audience with a general interest in architecture in Denmark and around the world.

Danish and English language edition. Richly illustrated. The New Wave in Danish Architecture contains both photos of interiors and exteriors, drawings etc.
