Gert Wingardh: Eight Projects
From Liljevalchs to the Nationalmuseum
Gert Wingårdh, design Henrik Nygren
This book features eight buildings and projects by the well-known Swedish architect Gert Wingårdh. A range of different types of buildings, from the design process to the completed building.
How can architecture exist as an art form in an increasingly technocratic world? How can architects convert their designs into cost-efficient and economic buildings?
In eight uncompromising projects, Gert Wingårdh presents his personal answers. The range of projects starts with simple tasks, such as a water tower and a bus stop. These are contrasted by the artistically designed Aula Medica of the Karolinska Institutet and the Naturum museum and visitor center in Gällivare in the north of Sweden, the renovation of the National Museum and the extension to the Liljevalchs Konsthall.
