Abstract

Presentation preference: Oral Niels Bohr´s guest house (1957) was the first building by the Danish architect Vilhelm Wohlert (1920-2007). Rooted into the Danish tradition and the principles of the Skønvirke, represents a renewal based on absorption of foreign influences: American architecture and Japanese tradition. Wohlert´s work ranges to different kind of commissions. Despite their disparate scales and functions, they show Wohlert´s commitment to human comfort, his dedication to precise construction, and the respect for materials. Features that are more evident than nowhere in the modest guesthouse that he created for Niels Bohr, Nobel Prize in Physics (1922), in a remote virgin forest in the northern of Sjælland. The keys of its aesthetic effect are its harmony and balance, conveying serenity and beauty. The encounter with nature is the most basic lesson of project, but the Danish attitude towards her is not domination but conciliation, where a world of relationships is gentle to human beings. It is a lesson of the thought that nature, life and architecture are united.
