About the book
A contemporary of Walter Gropius and Le Corbusier, Gunnar Asplund pursued a unique architecture that displayed a blend of classical tradition, vernacular architecture and Modernism. Above all, he achieved a sensitive understanding of the relationship between architecture and its surrounding landscape, and it is such contributions that have made him recognized as Sweden’s leading architect of the twentieth century.

His abilities are amply demonstrated in masterpieces like the Woodland Cemetery.

This comprehensive monograph includes extensive new colour photography as well as many original drawings. It was produced in collaboration with the archives of the Swedish Architectural Museum in Stockholm.

There is no other book currently in print dedicated solely to the work of Gunnar Asplund.
