Visitors are guided through the life and career of this Pritzker-award-winning architect: from his childhood and adolescence in Aalborg to his years at the Danish Royal Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Design and Conservation, as well as, the early years of his career in Sweden during World War II, until the time when he collaborated with the Finnish architect, Alvar Aalto.
Through high-resolution touchscreen-display drawings, photographs, videos and original models, the exhibition explores the major themes that shaped Utzon’s architecture. Utzon’s work includes the design of the Sydney Opera House, the Can Lis summer house in Majorca, the Bagsværd Church, the National Assembly Building in Kuwait, and the mythical unbuilt project for the Silkeborg museum, which had been intended to house the art and private collection of Danish artist Asger Jorn.
