Room 606 is the only surviving interior of the SAS Royal Hotel from 1960, Arne Jacobsen’s principal work and a key reference in the history of architecture and design. It is also the title of a new book by Michael Sheridan published in January 2023, which documents the SAS House and considers it in relation to other works by Arne Jacobsen and his contributions to architecture in general. The book is richly illustrated with nearly 500 photographs and drawings. It guides the reader on a virtual tour through the SAS Royal Hotel and Air Terminal as they appeared in 1960 and traces the origins of the SAS House to a series of earlier buildings and objects. As a result, the study of Jacobsen’s work that begins in Room 606 ultimately provides a general introduction to his entire career.
Room 606: The SAS House and the work of Arne Jacobsen was originally published in 2003. Since then, Michael Sheridan has continued his studies of Danish and Scandinavian architecture, and in this new and revised edition of Room 606, the author offers new perspectives on the work of the acclaimed architect.
New York-based architect Michael Sheridan is an internationally recognized scholar of modern Danish architecture and design. The book is published by Strandberg Publishing.
