Publication: Tietgen's Agony

The block of flats, Tietgen’s Agony, in Copenhagen is the last in a series of buildings constructed in the nineteenth century under the patronage of the financier C.F. Tietgen in the area surrounding Frederik's Church.

Tietgen's Agony by Tony Fretton is a modern building. However, it is a building that fully makes sense only on the little corner site in downtown Copenhagen where it stands. For it has been created with deep roots in the plot on which it has been built and deep roots in the area's special history: a tale whose preceding chapter was written by the financier, C.F. Tietgen at the closing of the nineteenth century.
