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 first 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.
