“by the thirties people like kay fisker and c. f. moller were making reference to the international style in their copenhagen housing projects: long, low-rise, garden apartments with balconies and shops below. but many of the wartime and post war architects abandoned any international style overtones and reverted to a kind of arts and crafts version of housing, in which apartments were made to appear to be detached, freestanding single family houses with steep sloping roofs and brick detail.”
