In this brief contribution, we are introduced to two of Erik Hansen’s restoration works in Denmark, the Marble Bridge across Frederiksholm’s Canal (erected 1739–1745) and his private house in Wildersgade (built ca. 1725), both in Copenhagen. These two examples demonstrate Hansen’s unique approach to architecture, in which he literarily is “The Man Who Speaks with the Stones.”
