Abstract :
Presents a photographic overview of the work of four Danish architects - Svend Algren, Jens Arnfred, Michael Sten Johnsen and Steffen Kragh - who work cooperatively under the name Vandkunsten. The majority of their projects are dense, low-rise housing complexes, as well as small institutions and commercial buildings, mostly in Denmark and some other European countries. The following authors have contributed essays: 1) Erik Nygaard surveys their work, addressing such aspects as exterior and interior details; overall structure; relation to the landscape features of a site; stylistic elements regularly employed; and the importance of ecological design; 2) Claes Caldenby looks at Vandkunsten's achievements in comparison to Swedish architecture, pointing out similarities and differences; and 3) Jan W. Hansen examines their stylistic continuity. ;
