Arne Jacobsen’s architecture is characterized by a clear design language oriented towards geometry and material.

This was derived less from the function, as is often portrayed, but arose from Jacobsen’s rigid modernist concept, to which, in private everyday life, his family also had to submit. Jacobsen was seen by critics as an architectural dictator who designed buildings so rigidly that there was no room for personal changes.

Proportions are what makes the old Greek temples classic in their beauty. They are like huge blocks, from which the air has been literally hewn out between the columns.
