Kay Fisker: Block Terrace Square (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This book is the first on the architecture of Kay Fisker (1893-1965), a leading exponent of Danish

Functionalism. Influenced by Louis Sullivan, Fisker had a strong belief in

continuity, putting modernism in perspective and identifying precedents. He

built many large scale housing schemes, mostly for non-profit workers' housing

associations, and developed innovative and beautifully considered high-density,

low-rise block schemes, which have proven useful and influential to the growing

number of contemporary architects who have examined his designs.

Beautifully illustrated with photographs and architectural

drawings, this book documents and critically analyses three of Kay Fisker's

seminal housing projects in Copenhagen: Hornbaekhus (1923); Vestersohus (1935-39);

and Dronningegarden (1943-58). These projects reflect how Fisker's work

contains valuable lessons for contemporary architects in economy, precision and

generosity in housing design. An introduction sets Fisker's work within their

historical, social and architectural context. A final section includes in-depth

case studies of the three award-winning contemporary architects: Tony Fretton,

London; Clancy Moore, Dublin and Job Floris of Monadnock, Rotterdam. The architects

explain their projects and how these have been influenced by Fisker.
