Petrol Station by Arne Jacobsen.


This petrol station is registered to National Heritage! Amazing. I have never heard that a petrol station has been registered as National Heritage before. Is there any?
The roof looks like it widens up toward to the front. This is not an effect of pantoscopic camera. The shape of the roof seems to be a circler shape, but Jacobsen took the form of an ellipse. Moreover, you wouldn’t notice from the picture from the front, but when you look at the building from the side, this roof is actually sloped up toward front.
Every corner of the building is rounded and it’s really “Jacobsen” style.




Front of the Petrol Station, there is a nice modern architecture…
Does anyone know who did this?
