A great Danish designer - Jørn Utzon

"I like to be on the edge of the possible," - Jørn Utzon

Lasse Andersson, Utzon Centre Creative Director, explores three of Jørn Utzon's architectural masterpieces, the Sydney Opera House, Ahm House and Can Lis, and reflects on Why is still one of the most celebrated and visionary Danish designers of the 20th Century.

Heavily influenced by nature, Utzon worked with metaphors to inform his design, creating a unique sensation of space. As a keen traveller, he drew inspiration from historical structures and methods of construction from Peruvian Inca architecture to Chinese pagodas.

Utzon had a clear understanding of the singular experience of architecture and its relationship to time, nature and its surrounding environment. This filim is an insight into this iconic Danish designer.

Wellness and wellbeing - Ilse Crawfordgreat

Nestled in the backstreets of central Stockholm, Ilse Crawford’s Ett Hem is a truly unique hotel that perfectly encapsulates its Swedish name ‘a home’. It also stands as the perfect example of the award-winning designer’s belief that wellness and wellbeing is the upmost importance in design. Focusing on understanding the real needs of people and lives that will be lived within a space before even thinking about aesthetics. This understanding hones right down to what makes us human and makes full use of our innate senses.
