Most famous for the remarkable Woodland Cementary which has influenced Tadao Ando and many others, Sigurd Lewerentz (1885-1975) collaborated often with Erik Gunnar Asplund and played an important role at the 1930 Stockholm exhibition, a breakthrough in Modernism. Afterwards Lewerentz went to create an intense personal architecture that has a strong following. The two examples featured in this book, the Church of St. Marks (1958) and the Church of St. Peters (1958), are considered to be his masterpieces.
