Description


The publication Lewerentz Fragments introduces new scholarship on the architect's motivations and compiles new essays from all the major scholars on his work, for the first time in one volume presenting both historical and critical perspectives.

Through new essays, recently discovered archival material, photography, and drawings, the publication Lewerentz Fragments explores the architect's body of work spanning three-quarters of the twentieth century. Comprising writings from all the major scholars on Lewerentz' work, along with several new voices, this publication offers new insight into the context surrounding this architect's work. Rather than focusing on a single thesis, the book offers a diversity of insight from multiple cultural and professional perspectives. In addition, previously unpublished translations of interviews and dialogs among the architect and his contemporaries offer a voice to the 'silent architect' altering the traditional interpretations of the work and digging past the surface of what might be considered his philosophy of building. Rather than serving as an introduction to the architect's work, this volume provides detailed fragments as a deep and diverse dive into one of the most mysterious of Scandinavia's modern masters.
