Arne Jacobsen: Absolutely Modern

Arne Jacobsen: Absolutely Modern

Добавить в корзину
Book DescriptionDanish designer and architect Arne Jacobsen would have been one hundred years old in 2002, and Absolutely Modern takes this centennial celebration as a wonderful excuse to look back on and also forward to his oeuvre and legacy. Jacobsen's most distinguishing characteristic was arguably his preoccupation with the Gesamtkunstwerk, with wanting to do it all, to apply design to everything, from the cellar to the roof, from silverware to the National Bank. Absolutely Modern looks at the range of objects and buildings he created throughout his career, and invites three international architects--Dominique Perrault, Gigon & Guyer, and Sejima and Nishizawa--to clarify his legacy against the background of their own practices.
