Ever since the Lassen brothers were children, they seemed born to become architects. While other boys would play with toy cars, the brothers spent their time surveying and sketching buildings. But though the final goal of becoming architects was always crystal clear, the brothers’ path was not without obstacles. Mogens Lassen had dyslexia, and money was tight; thus both brothers would find themselves taking alternate routes to architecture, rather than through the Royal Danish Academy. Still, their design and simple aesthetic and functionality brought them to the top of the world of architecture.
