The book aims to examine and describe the activities of Danish architects, who have worked in the Middle East countries. The works of Danish architects in Arabic countries are considered as important design works because of their public functions and big scale. They are also highly regarded by reason of aesthetical and cultural values. The book also points out the richness of architectural approaches of Danish architects when they have used elements and features related to Islamic architecture in their own designs in Denmark. The book contains projects by Utzon, Henning Larsen, Arne Jacobsen, Dissing and Weitling, Knuds Holscher and Hans Munk Hansen.
