Gorgeous photos and beautiful Danish architecture, yet the Danes are semi miserable [those who live in Denmark!]. Is architecture overrated? Canadian architecture is not a success story but most Canadians are not miserable. If you think they are, you have not been to Scandinavia.. Sorry to be a grump, but sometimes aesthetics is overrated and can be a tyranny of orthodoxy. Freedom to the ugly can be liberating. Sometimes tearing down is more fun than building.
