Arne Jacobsen

The first period of his activity took place in his homeland, during which he won the first prize in the Akademisk Arkitektforeningen competition for a "house of the future" designed with F. Lassen (1929). He later moved to Sweden,where he mainly worked on upholstery and fabric designs. He returned to Denmark and competed in a number of competitions, winning the 1961 Grand Prix d'Architecture et d'Art.

The most notable feature of Jacobsen's architecture is a perfect balance between the instances pursued by theavant-garde movements of the 1920s (De Stijl, Bauhaus)and the constructive and formal tradition of Danisharchitecture. The result is an interesting mediation between the volumetric purity and the clear characterization of the surfaces, obtained through the use of exposed brick and structural wood,the sloping roof, the sizing of the windows into small square panels; all elements that he was able to elaborate also thanks to the close friendship with Gunnar Asplund.

The most interesting works of this period are the Bellavista complex near Copenhagen (1930-1935)which included a residential core, a theater, bathrooms, with elegant cabins and kiosks, a restaurant; the Stelling House in Copenhagen(1937-1938)and the town hall of Aarhus (1939-1942,in collaboration) and that of S'ller'd (1940-42). The period following the period of the world war,characterized by almost total isolation, was for Jacobsen of great uncertainty and only with the design of the terraced houses of the S.Holm(1946-1950)he confirmed his prominent position among the Danish architects his contemporaries.

Subsequent works include the Munkegard School(1952-1956),the Jespersen Palace (1955) and the SAS Palace(1959),both in Copenhagen, and the town hall of Rédovre (1955), in which it is evident a approach to the lesson of Mie Mies van der Rohe.

In recent years, now an internationally renowned architect, he received numerous assignments abroad: St. Chaterine College in Oxford (1960-1964),the parliament building in Islamabad, Pakistan (1962),a nursing home, the town hall and a theatre in Castrop-Rauxel, Germany (1966-1967),the offices of HEW in Hamburg (1970)and the Danish Embassy in London (1970-1977).1977

On the death of Arne Jacobsen, his then-partners Hans Dissing and Otto Weitlingcollected the studio's legacy. This is how Dissing-Weitlingwas founded in 1971, a studio that still exists and is based in Copenhagen.
