Delisted: A Political Story
|The Danish Architectural Press
Dag Petersson’s new book delves into the intricate political complexities that surfaced following the Danish People’s Party’s proposal in 2016 to delist Erik Christian Sørensen’s Viking Ship Hall in Roskilde, demolish it, and allocate 150 million in funding for a new museum” in Viking style.” The pivotal questions posed by the book are to what extent did the building itself play a role as a political actor? Did its architectural design shape the unfolding events? How did the architecture influence discourse and actions? Documents and interviews showed that it did indeed play a role, albeit not in the way the author had expected.
