A+U April 2016 SPECIAL ISSUE: Sigurd Lewerentz - Drawing Collection 1+2
This special edition of a+u is a comprehensive issue of Sigurd Lewerentz – Drawing Collection, originally published as two issues in January and February 2016
Consisting of Lewerentz's hand drawings from the Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design archive and photographs, the issue covers four of the architect's prominent works throughout his career: Malmö Eastern Cemetery, Social Security Institute, Villa Edstrand, and St. Petri Church.
Despite that Swedish architect Sigurd Lewerentz saw comparatively few of his buildings realised, he has nevertheless gained a substantial international reputation. Guest-edited by Wilfried Wang, this special issue consisting of two special instalments focusing on the value and work of Lewerentz enables a wider readership of his drawings and sketches, selected from the archive at the Swedish Centre of Architecture and Design in Stockholm. Together with historical photographs by Fabio Galli, current images, and essays by Janne Ahlin, Claes Caldenby, Johan Mårtelius, and Wang, this body of work offers both rare insight into the architect’s design ethics and material for further appreciation and research.
