Abstract

Danish architect Vilhelm Wohlert (1920-2007), after a stay as a guest teacher at Berkeley University, designs his first building. Created in a period of a flourishing architecture, it achieves a balance between Danish tradition and modernity, where international references -American architecture and Japanese tradition- are significant. Its ability to fit into the circumstances, sets a model for the buildings of the future. There is a dialogue with the surrounding nature, her careful observation; establishing a great connection, where the Danish attitude towards her is not a domination. The architect knows the material and uses it in harmony with its essence. The study suggests that the vernacular may be a process that evolves and transforms over time involving a significant level of modernity, and that a look at it could be an answer to prevent the loss the identity of architecture. El arquitecto danés Vilhelm Wohlert (1920-2007), tras una estancia como profesor invitado en la Universidad de Berkeley, proyecta su primer edificio. Construido en un periodo de florecimiento arquitectónico, logra el equilibrio entre la tradición danesa y la modernidad, donde las referencias internacionales -la arquitectura americana y tradición japonesa- serán trascendentales. Su capacidad para adaptarse a las circunstancias, lo convierte en un modelo para los edificios del futuro. Hay un diálogo con la naturaleza circundante, su atenta observación; estableciéndose una gran conexión, donde la actitud danesa hacia ella no es de dominación. El arquitecto conoce el material y lo utiliza en armonía con su esencia. El estudio sugiere que lo vernáculo puede ser un proceso que evoluciona y se transforma con el tiempo, implicando un nivel significativo de modernidad, y que una mirada a ello puede ser una respuesta para prevenir la pérdida de identidad de la arquitectura.
