Arne Jacobsen's design philosophy

The unmistakable style of Arne Jacobsen is based on having made Danish taste in particular and Scandinavian in general coincide with the dictates of European rationalism of currents such as De Stijil and Bauhaus. A new way of building was born, based on the harmonious coexistence between volumetric simplicity and refinement of surfaces. To do this, Arne Jacobsen turned to the use of exposed brick and wood for the structures, pitched roofs and streamlining the windows into small squares. Its architectures are still perfectly recognizable today.
