140. Copenhagen. Gammeltorv and our Lady's Church


Dear Pier,

Designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1938,
the "Stelling Hus" is located in the
northern side of the old Gammeltorv
square. The building situated in an
old part of the town was, at the time,
criticized for its irreverent modernism.
Today, however, it is possible to
appreciate how well the building
measures up to the scale of the old
built neighbors, and how much even
its building material is in keeping with
the congenial atmosphere of the
district.

Regards.
R
