Gottlieb Bindesbøll and Romantic Historicism

    Publications: Contribution to journalJournal articlepeer-review


    The article demonstrates how the Danish architect Gottlieb Bindesbøll (1800-1856) employed a form of repetition of motifs many places in his architecture, regardless of style. A closer look shows that this is not only a distinctive feature of a single architect's work, but also a new way of achieving consistency. This design principle emerged in the romantic view of architecture as an organic entity and later became influential among twentieth-century Danish architects.
