The Man & The Architect - Jørn Utzon
2018 / 90 min / Denmark 
Directors: Lene Borch Hansen, Anna von Lowzow

This documentary about Jørn Utzon tells the personal and emotional story about the world-renowned architect and his unique gift. Behind him stood the love of his life through 70 years, Lis, without whom Jørn would not have become the architect and man he was. His story is told by the people who were closest to him for decades: his children, close colleagues, and friends, all of whom share anecdotes and personal experiences. He greatly inspired the people he worked with, and meeting Jørn Utzon had a profound effect on their lives. The film is a portrait of a devoted humanitarian and a sensitive and loving soul.


ADFF:ONLINE is a way for the architecture and design community to remain engaged and experience specially-curated films during this “shelter-at-home” period. We hope this new online venue will serve as a virtual space for the professional design industry - and the broader community - to be together.
