And Other Essays on the Oeuvre of Landscape Architect Sven-Ingvar Andersson
Sven-Ingvar’s Garden – and other essays on the oeuvre of landscape architect Sven-Ingvar Andersson offers a personal view on the work of this renowned Swedish landscape architect (1927-2007). Due to Andersson’s poetic designs for public spaces in Vienna, Amsterdam and Paris the Scandinavian garden and landscape architecture gained more and more international success. Lodewijk Wiegersma reviews these squares and parks as well as Andersson’s finest works in Sweden and Denmark, such as Brunnpark and Sophienholm. The inspiring private garden of Sven-Ingvar is part of the story, as well as a dialogue between Wiegersma and this remarkable architect.
