Sigurd Lewerentz : 1885-1975 by Nicola Flora( Book )

22 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The only comprehensive monograph of the work of Sigurd Lewerentz, features 150 of Lewerentz's designs and constructions spanning more than 60 years. Sigurd Lewerentz (1885 - 1975) was one of the major Swedish architects of the twentieth century and was particularly known for his important religious works. This definitive monograph is the only comprehensive survey of his work, celebrating his sensitive and distinctive response to modernism in a detailed survey of both built and planned projects. These span his embrace and rejection of the classical language of architecture and his turn instead towards modernism and a more austere design vocabulary. The book includes his best-known chapels of St Knut and St Gertrud in the Malmo cemetry (begun in 1916), the conversion of the cathedral in Uppsala, on which he worked for nearly ten years and the church of St Peter at Klippan. The first section of the volume includes essays on Lewerentz's work by the late Colin St John Wilson and the editors Nicola Flora, Paolo Giardiello and Gennaro Postiglione, plus a text on cemeteries by Lewerentz that is the only known piece of writing by the architect. The central section contains a catalogue of Lewerentz's works presenting around 150 designs and constructions in chronological order with detailed descriptions, photographs and drawings. An anthology of criticisms includes a text by the renowned architect Alison Smithson. A complete list of works and a bibliography based on research in the archives of Stockholm's Museum of Architecture conclude the volume

Es gibt kaum eine bessere Möglichkeit Architekten in ihrer stilistischen und visionären Reinform zu erleben, als bei der Betrachtung des Hauses, welches sie für sich selbst bauten. In der Auftragsarchitektur kommt es oft zum Konflikt, wenn der Architekt seine Ästhetik und Idee realisieren möchte, aber gleichzeitig auch die Wünsche des Bauherrn zu berücksichtigen hat. So ist die Gefahr gross, entweder den künstlerischen Grundgedanken zu zerstören, oder dem Bewohner eine nicht gewünschte Konzeption aufzuzwingen. Dagegen stellt sich das Architektenhaus als originales, reines und unverfälschtes Gesamtkunstwerk dar, das darüber hinaus im Interieur (Möbel, Design, Kunstwerke) über die Vorstellungen des Architekten erzählt. Vorgestellt werden unter anderem die Häuser von Alvar Aalto, Egon Eiermann, Walter Gropius und LeCorbusier. In alphabetischer Reihenfolge wirft dieser Band einen umfassenden Blick auf 100 Häuser berühmter europäischer Architekten des 20. Jahrhunderts in Grund- und Aufrissen, Aussen- und Innenansichten, Interieurs und Entwürfen

Not unlike so many other vestiges of war that have infiltrated our cities and landscapes, WWII bunkers and fortifications appear unwilling to be absorbed or erased. The signs of armed conflict that make up the "Conflict archaeological landscape" cut across but could also unify Europe. This book presents a rich and unique iconography and a selection of essays. This book provides a new critical approach to the Atlantikwall, the largest WWII bunker, proposing that it be interpreted as one of the major Western military archaeological landscapes
