Summary This illustrated book details how a century's worth of social changes are reflected in the development of Swedish architecture. Featured are various periods in which Swedish architecture and urban planning were at the forefront of European design. The volume also examines the current construction techniques employed in numerous modern buildings and the diverse looks they achieve. It explains Sweden's progressive role in the modern movement, with architecture that is functionalist and aesthetic and distinctly Nordic in character. Sweden: 20th Century Architecture includes over 80 projects, and the reader learns visually and theoretically about the top-quality architecture of this country
