Utzon’s Mushrooms in Esbjerg
Utzon’s Mushrooms in Esbjerg
This is the entrance of the Musikhuset in Esbjerg, a harbor city on the rugged west coast of Denmark. It’s a performing arts centre and was designed by the architects Jan and Jorn Utzon. To quote Jan Utzon: "Our intention was to design a building complex that, together with the city park and harbor area would create a festive frame around the artists and the audience; a building that architecturally would give Esbjerg a new identifiable element in the city." The building is situated in the City Park next to the Art Exhibition building with a wide view over the harbor and the sea. The light and airy foyer, with its tall slim columns behind the polygonal window panes, is like an open room in the city. The design of the entrance Plaza and Foyer, inspired by the trees in the surrounding City Park, is formed as a forest of "Mushroom" columns that organically tie the various functions together. The columns are designed as prefabricated concrete elements with the upper parts of steel, wood or plate construction. Perhaps the name Utzon has rang bell with some people. Indeed, Jorn Utzon is the Danish architect who designed the world famous Sydney Opera House. Although Jorn designed many buildings, the Opera House was his international break-through. Therefore, it’s was very unfortunate that he found himself in conflict with the Australian Government about the escalating cost for the project. Things heated-up quickly. At the opening of the Opera House (in 1973), the architect was not invited to the ceremony, or was his name mentioned. Jan Utzon is the son of Jorn. This photo is composed of seven individual shots.

Danish Modern
For serious furniture collectors, Danish is more than a pastry-it's an art form. Twentieth century Danish furniture design is simple and clean., mixes well with other design styles, and has an inherent value and history beyond its beauty. In Modern Danish, Andrew Hollingsworth explores the history of Danish design, from the earliest cabinetmakers' guilds in the 1770s through the impact of two world wars, and its evolution into the twentieth century. The book includes photographic surveys of Danish Modern furniture in homes across the Unites States; a market guide with tips, facts and resources that includes discussions of veneer vs. solid wood, places to find Danish Modern furniture, and a guide to caring for it; and an extensive resource section.
Andrew Hollingsworth first started collecting Danish Modern furniture fifteen years ago while living in Europe. Passion for the field led to the founding of his eponymous gallery in 2002 specializing in twentieth-century Scandinavian and contemporary European design. Since that time he has participated in many of the nation's leading antique and design shows, has made TV appearances and has been the subject of numerous press articles, including a feature story on the cover of Metropolitan Home in October 2004.
