Erik Gunnar Asplund: Architect

This monograph, originally published by Gingko Press in 1986, sold more than 25,000 copies worldwide and is the definitive work on Asplund. Asplund became the dominant representative of the Scandinavian classicism which marked the twenties, known as 'Swedish Grace'. He then became the leading light of functionalism, but soon moved from stereo-typed modernism to a traditionally based architecture. His influence today is felt far afield. Asplund remains at the focal point of architectural debates. This groundbreaking work includes essays by Kenneth Frampton, Stuart Wrede, Elias Cornell, and is published with photos, drawings and plans.
