This inspiring book presents the work of 70 architects from
Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. Written by David
Sokol, Nordic Architects includes a unique question-and-answer
format that provides firsthand accounts of the dialogues shaping
northern Europe's design community. Readers will engage with
the region's enduring legacy of modernist architecture that is
sensitive to both sites and occupants, as well as the global
currents that are roiling designers toward experimental work and
provocative thinking. The volume shows architecture, urban
planning, and landscape architecture within the Nordic countries
and beyond, and features a generous, clean layout punctuated by
stunning photography. In doing so, Nordic Architects
re-familiarizes readers with prominent names and introduces them to
architects just emerging onto the scene.
