hans chr. hansen, architect
hans chr. hansen, architect and a hero of mine. one of the few true originals in Danish architecture.

the comments I have added to some of my photos can be read together as a kind of mangled, yet surprisingly brief essay. repetitious and opinionated, it reflects the writer above his subject, but until someone does some serious research on hansen, a complete lack of competition makes me immune to criticism. enjoy :)
