#7 Church of Shadows

The black-box with Nordic spirit

Extract from our latest publication A New Golden Age Nordic Architecture & Design:

“When I designed the Church of Shadows my most important inspiration was the dualistic play between light and darkness. And how darkness can be important as a design element. I worked with darkness as in a love affair with light. This secret love affair was an important inspiration to me.”

Wood as a cladding


“Wood is the future.”

Extract from our publication A New Golden Age Nordic Architecture & Landscape:

“We usually say that it takes about one minute for the forests of Sweden to produce all the material that went into constructing this building – sixty seconds. It weighs a third of what it would have if it had been constructed with a conventional concrete frame.”

#6 Nordic Villa with a strong adaption

Nordic architecture is not only known for its simplicity in design, but furthermore for a strong adaption to the context

The first issue of the Nordic New Golden Age book trilogy captures one of many Nordic inspired dwellings. With its minimalistic expression and natural materials, it is hidden in the landscape to inhale the beautiful view of Aarhus Bay. In Villa Albertsen, located in Aarhus, the architects Luplau & Poulsen Arkitekter are adapting the surroundings down to the very last detail. As they quote;

“A view to the horizon has inspired a horizontal design right down to the extended oblong brick format.”

Perspectives on Global Danish Architecture

#6 Peder Elgaard

– From an architectural point of view, the awareness of both cultural identity and sustainability is really a gift from the society, the consumer and the clients to the profession.

Quote from his article ‘Architecture in Transformation’ in our publication Global Danish Architecture #7.

Peder Elgaard (1968) is Danish practicing architect, founder and owner at ELGAARD Architecture and holder of a Master’s degree in Architectural Heritage, NORDMAK. He is also a regular advisor to the Ministry of Culture, regarding alterations of listed buildings, as well as a former Royal Building Inspector in Copenhagen.

The Bridge of Peace was designed by an Italian architect; Michele De Lucchi. The lighting design belongs to the French designer Philippe Martinaud. The bridge of Peace was built 2010 by the order of the City Hall of Tbilisi with the intention to connect Old Tbilisi with the new district.
