REVIEW

Jørn Utzon Houses By H S Moller. Photography by Per Nagel. Living Architecture Publishing, 2006. 242pp. £40

Though it includes an introduction and brief descriptions of the featured projects, this is really a picture book, showcasing Utzon through the photographs of Per Nagel. So it can't be compared with Richard Weston's big monograph (AJ 04.04.02), or the Utzon Logbooks on selected schemes that Edition Blondal publishes, but the photos certainly have their merits.

The title is interpreted broadly, in that the majority of Utzon's buildings are taken as 'houses'. So Sydney Opera House and Kuwait National Assembly are included, alongside Utzon's 'house of God' (Bagsværd Church) and his two family homes on Majorca, which always make you want to be there. In sum, it's quite a full, seductive record of Utzon's overall output.
