This book conveys to the reader an appreciation of Arne Jacobsen and his work as an architect.

In the 1920s, the press described Arne Jacobsen as the "leading representative" of functionalism and as "the Danish Corbusier". Ethereal elegance was Jacobsen's hallmark throughout his career; for example his staircases, whose light construction and suspension seem to defy gravity. All Jacobsen's significant works are described in this book. Among the works studied are Stelling's house, the town halls, the SAS Hotel and the Danish Central Bank. Jacobsen worked as an architect and designer for almost 50 years. During this period, his professional range embraced, among other things furniture, textiles, wallpaper, lamps, porcelain, hollowware, and steel.
