  • Description
  • Specifications
Exhibition poster with a drawing of Fremtidens Hus (1929), published in connection with the Arne Jacobsen exhibition in Louisiana in 2002 on the occasion of the world-famous architect's 100th birthday. The exhibition was a retrospective tribute to the architect and his modernist design and furniture art, and Fremtiden Hus was Jacobsen's breakthrough as an architect.

The House of the Future is designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1929 together with Flemming Lassen and the futuristic house is presented—and becomes a winning project and an audience magnet—at a large building and housing fair in Forum in Frederiksberg, the same year.

In Jacobsen's tradition, the house is designed to be functional and expresses man's control of the elements air, earth and water—with easy access to the house by car, boat—and a helicopter on the roof. The House of the Future is without excesses and is completely clean with a focus on the function of the building itself, as a kind of "living machine".

Fremtidens Hus is referred to as Arne Jacobsen's breakthrough as an architect with a larger audience.
