Synopsis: Sigurd Lewerentz (1885–1975) was educated as a mechanical engineer at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, but it was an architectural apprenticeship in Munich that set him on his career path—a path that led him to be revered as one of Sweden?s most eminent architects.
           
Sigurd Lewerentz, Architect is a high-quality reprint of the first monograph ever written on Lewerentz and his work. Originally published in 1985 in Swedish, this legendary book tells the story of his life and presents his entire body of work through a combination of texts, photographs, drawings, and plans. This edition sets Lewerentz in a contemporary context through a concluding essay on his work and legacy by the German-Chinese architect, critic, and professor Wilfried Wang.

Book Description Park Books. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Sigurd Lewerentz, Architect: 1885-1975, Janne Ahlin, Sigurd Lewerentz (1885-1975) was initially educated as mechanical engineer in Gothenburg. Yet it was his architectural apprenticeship in Munich 1909-10 that set him on his path as an architect, opening his own office in Stockholm in 1911. Although his built work is relatively small, Lewerentz is revered as one of Sweden's most eminent architects. Cemeteries and sacred buildings became a core part of Lewerentz's oeuvre, including Stockholm's South Cemetery (1914-17), Malmo Eastern Cemetery (1916), St. Mark's Church, Bjorkhagen (1956), and Petri Church, Klippan (1963). In association with Gunnar Asplund, he was also the main architect for the Stockholm International Exhibition (1930), and in collaboration with Erik Lallerstedt and David Hellden he created a masterpiece of functionalist architecture, the Malmo City Theatre (1935). Sigurd Lewerentz, Architect is a reprint of the first ever monograph on his work, originally published in English 1987 and long out of print. It tells the story of Lewerentz's life and presents his entire work in text and many photographs, drawings and plans. The new edition is rounded out by a new essay on Lewrentz and his significance by the German-Chinese architect, critic, and professor, Wilfried Wang. Bookseller Inventory # B9783906027487

Die Neuausgabe wird durch einen Essay des Architekten und Autors Wilfried Wang ergänzt.Sigurd Lewerentz absolvierte ein Maschinenbaustudium an der Chalmers University of Technology in Göteborg, bevor er sich in München zum Architekten ausbilden liess. 1911 eröffnete er sein eigenes Architekturbüro in Stockholm.

Lewerentz entwarf unter anderem den Ostfriedhof von Malmö, die Markuskirche in Björkhagen, die Peterskirche in Klippan und gemeinsam mit Gunnar Asplund den Stockholmer Südfriedhof (Woodland). Im Alter arbeitete er vor allem an Wettbewerbseingaben und im Bereich des Möbeldesigns. Obwohl die Anzahl seiner Bauten überschaubar geblieben ist, zählt er inzwischen zu den renommiertesten Architekten Schwedens. Einzelheiten: Illustrationen: 29 farb., 215 schw.-w. Abb. 88 Pläne u.
