Wandering through the West
September 13, 2011 § 4 Comments
This weekend I had the opportunity to explore the western Denmark. Copenhagen, the capital and largest city in DK, is located on the eastern coast of Denmark so this was my first time experiencing more of the country. Although Denmark is only slightly larger than the size of Maryland, there is plenty to explore.
The weekend look me to the main island of Jutland, where we explored the cities of Aalborg, Århus and Kolding with some random stops along the way.
As always, Scandanavian design in superb throughout all of Denmark. Our group got to experience the work of Scandanvian masters like Jørn Utzon (architect of the Sydney Opera House), Alvar Aalto (the MASTER Scandanavian architect), Henning Larsen (architect of the Copenhagen Opera House) and Lundgaard & Tranberg Architects (architect of the Copenhagen Royal Playhouse), just to name a few.
Each day we would embark early in the morning, arrive at our destination and go right to work.
Explore. Analyze. Diagram. Sketch. Photograph. Sketch some more. I easily filled up a quarter of my sketchbook and can’t wait to explore more!
Although I was exhausted each day, the designs I experienced and analysis I learned were well worth an aching hand and sore feet. Here is a peak at some of what we visited. Check my flickr site for more photographs!
