Only one month after the launching of our latest book News in Nordic Architecture we are ready to send a new book in print. This book presents a special selection of Nordic, cool housing projects from our previous book series News in Nordic Architecture, A New Golden Age and Global Danish Architecture. The new book Cool nordiske boliger is written in Danish and will arrive in the shops first week of December.
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.”
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.”

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)
