Idea Code 17455

Architect Lise Juel expresses how “Melancholy as a concept has been a useful perspective in understanding artists and artworks, but it remains underexposed in the field of architecture.” And yet, she continues, this is “not melancholic in its negative sense, but in the sense of a thoughtful and pensive approach to life.” Seventeen houses in Denmark are featured in this issue, along with more than a dozen architectural offices that in turn reflect this melancholic perspective through their work, key to understanding Danish architectural practice, both traditionally and in the present. With work by Jeppe Utzon, LETH & GORI, Primus Architects, Atelier Lise Juel, and more.
