Gunnar Asplund An analysis of the life and work of the Swedish architect.Peter Blundell Jones Comprehensive monograph of Erik Gunnar Asplund (1885-1940), Sweden's pre-eminent architect and a central figure in the development of Scandinavia's architectural modernism Offers an in-depth analysis of Asplund's life and work, in particular his collaborations with architect Sigurd Lewerentz Extensively illustrated with photographs, drawings and Asplund's own renderings Explores key projects in detail, including Stockholm City Library (1928), Gothenburg Law Courts (1937) and the Woodland Crematorium at Enskede, Sweden (1940) Although a contemporary of Walter Gropius and Le Corbusier, Asplund pursued an architecture that does not fit easily into their view of Modernism as a movement that rejected the applied styles and ornamentation of the nineteenth century. Instead, Asplund was at ease with classical or vernacular elements blending with modernist ideals, and displayed a sensitive understanding of the relationship between architecture and its surrounding landscape. His abilities are amply demonstrated in masterpieces like the Woodland Cemetery. In 1915 Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz won the competition to plan a new cemetery for Stockholm. Their romantic plan, in which a symbolically straight, narrow pathway abruptly curves blindly away into the forest, and with open fields capped by burial-mound-like hillocks, earned both of them further commissions for buildings within the cemetery. Asplund's Woodland Chapel of 1920 is tucked into the forest and uses classical elements such as Doric columns, but sparingly and in unusual ways, while manipulating scale in ways that further the spiritual and contemplative nature of the building. Buildings such as the architect's own summer house at Stennäs and the crematoria at Kviberg and Skövde, dating from the later part of his life when he had begun to embrace Modernism, still show traditional classical and vernacular influences and are evidence that not all forms of Modernism constituted a fresh start. This comprehensive monograph on Asplund includes extensive new colour photography, as well as many original drawings.
