#18 A long tradition of  ‘cold water’ bathing continues

Turning away from the coastline, this bathhouse opens up to the free horizon with a view of the archipelago

Extract from our latest publication News in Nordic Architecture

“The sense, sight and motion of the seascape inspire the design, a sharply angled volume in wood. Located on a beach promenade Kallbadhus is elevated three metres above sea level by thin columns.”

HM Queen Margrethe visits the Danish Academy in Rome

Last week HM Queen Margrethe visited the Danish Academy in Rome in occasion of the 50th anniversary of the building designed by the famous Danish architect Kay Fisker.

This gives flashbacks to 2006 where we in Archipress M published our first book Kay Fisker and the Danish Academy in Rome  in occasion of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Danish Academy of Science and Fine Art in Rome.

Today twelve other books are added to the list of books
published by Archipress M. You can buy our first and
Must-Have book about the Danish Academy in Rome
in the online shop.

 

 “People are often curiously waiting in front hoping to get a glimpse of what is hiding behind the walls of this building which was to be the last work of Kay Fisker.”

#17 Facade folded like origami

The aim was to utilise the light optimally both inside the apartments and in connection with the facade

Extract from our previous publication A New Golden Age – Housing

“The faceted facades have varying expressions and different character when the light and weather change. This gives the building a diverse expression over the day and months, leaving an impression of a welcoming and changeable building.”

Essay by Kjetil Trædal Thorsen, Snøhetta

Our new book News in Nordic Architecture includes a special essay by architect Kjetil Trædal Thorsen from Snøhetta with his thoughts on what it means to be nordic.

It’s an interesting essay portrayed with beautiful photografies.

“ ‘Nordic’ relates to something or someone having its roots in Scandinavia. The implicit meanings of someone, or something, being Nordic is, however, much wider, especially when paired up with nouns such as ‘society’, ‘values’ and, why not, ‘architecture’. ” (Kjetil Trædal Thorsen)
