aalborg 05b, arne jacobsen, 1956.

c.a.c. motorrenovering a/s, aalborg, 1956.

architect: arne jacobsen, 1902-1971.


somewhat surprisingly, the long facade of jacobsen's aalborg factory building displays a large expanse of glass clearly related to rødovre town hall and the SAS royal hotel as opposed to the short facade reminiscent of the earlier klampenborg housing.


as such, we could name it a transitional work but only if the word transitional is not taken to mean something of lesser worth.


the building is not well kept but the detailing including much of the glass is original.
