In 2012, Danish architect Lise Juel completed the restoration of fellow Dane Jorn Utzon s magnificent residence on the Spanish island of Mallorca, known as Can Lis. Uncovering Utzon is a series of pensees by Juel describing the process of restoring the beloved architect s unique and magnificent construction for the Utzon Foundation. Accompanying Juel s evocative account are the equally evocative images of the house by eminent architectural photographer Helene Binet. Known for her powerful black-and-white photographs of the work of the world s most important architects, past and present, Binet brings her unique eye to Can Lis to produce a breathtaking portrait of Utzon s spectacular, elemental masterpiece. Together, Juel s personal account and Binet s inimitable photography illustrate the undeniable power of this rough-hewn Modernist architectural landmark.
