The Danish architect Anton Rosen (1859-1928) graduated from the Royal Academy in 1882. He quickly became a very successful architect and created both villas, furniture, exhibitions, watertowers, summerhouses and famous buildings like the administration-building for Tuborg in Hellerup or the Palace Hotel at the town square in Copenhagen.
Rosen was inspired by international styles like art nouveau, Arts and Crafts and later functionalism. He approached every task with the same goal: to create something new every time. His originality has always been acknowledged, but the following celebration of strict functionalism and simplicity has been a menace to his legacy. For the first time, Anton Ronsen’s life and work is now presented in this large-scale book written by Lone Jensen.
Torben Eskerod has photographed Anton Rosen's buildings and drawings for the book.
Anton Rosen - en ener i dans arkitektur was published by Forlaget Vandkunsten in 2013.
370 pages, col. ill., ISBN: 978-87-7695-027-9.
