national bank of denmark, copenhagen, 1961-1978. architect: arne jacobsen, 1901-1971. final stages completed by architects dissing+weitling.

erichsens palais, 1797-1799. architect: c.f.harsdorff, 1735-1799.

as seen from the central square in copenhagen, jacobsen's national bank is just another classicist monument, discussing the orders with 18th century architect harsdorff, a professor at the royal academy like jacobsen and the friend and mentor of <a href="">c.f.hansen</a> whom we have met previously.

this is a favourite view of mine in copenhagen: continuity in architecture as a choice, the city as an ongoing conversation spanning centuries, jacobsen as a master of contextualism.

the glass pyramids in front are skylights of the recent copenhagen metro, KHRAS architects.
