Sigurd Lewerentz (29 July 1885 – 29 December 1975) was a Swedish architect. Lewerentz was born at Sandö in the parish of Bjärtrå in Västernorrland County, Sweden. He was the son of Gustaf Adolf Lewerentz and Hedvig Mathilda Holmgren. He initially trained as a mechanical engineer at the Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg (1905–8). Later he took up an architectural apprenticeship in Germany.

Lewerentz was one of five architects invited to prepare designs for the church at. .

Lewerentz was one of five architects invited to prepare designs for the church at Björkhagen. Through the auspices of the professional members of the jury, his almost hesitant proposal, containing several alternatives, was accepted by the lay jury members who felt unable to oppose the considered opinion of the architects. St Mark’s was completed in 1960. Lewerentz’s late projects represent an unprecedented integration of making and thought. Like Matisse, who advised young painters to cut off their tongues and communicate with brush, paint and canvas, Lewerentz was famously laconic.

The purpose of this paper is to investigate into the meaning of the New Brutalism sensed in the late church buildings of the Swedish architect Sigurd Lewerentz (1885-1975). St Mark's (1956-64) and St Peter's (1962-66) churches, his grand finale designs, have a unique architectural vocabulary of rough brickwork.

Beautifully designed book on Lewerentz's two churches. Caldenby sketches the essential features of the architect's work, and Caruso writes from a younger generation's view about Lewerentz's architectural language. Photography by Olof Hultin. English and Swedish text.
This book has some great photos of all of the innovative aspects of two of the best of his works, especially the fascinating brickwork.

Some of the model and plan views are a little confusing, but I definitely did not buy this book for that kind of precise analysis. The book hits upon what I do care about, that is, the material expression that makes the two buildings so special.

There are three essays in the book that provide several insights into all of Lewerentz's work, as well as a short history of the evolution of his architecture.

The book is very delicately constructed, and I am afraid that the cover may be dinged up or damaged very easily. Definitely keep it away from liquids and sharp things.
The book is one of my favorites in my collection as it is

distilled to two defining works by Lewerentz. The photos are well composed as well as the page layout. Images of models and floor plans/sections/elevations are included which is always a good sign of a astute editor.

Although the unprotected chipboard cover appeals to the "true to materail" purist in me, I do have to admit I am a bit concerned about its delicacy and how it will hold up over time.
