This book presents the most complete survey of Nordic architecture available today. Its 500 colour illustrations provide a visual explanation of this region’s architecture. With examples of public, domestic and commercial buildings this beautiful volume shows how Scandinavian architects use their own resources and traditions, as well as adapting the styles of medieval, Renaissance, baroque and modern Europe to generate ideas that were to have major international consequences. This unique look into Scandinavia’s new generation of architects will be an endlessly rich resource for anyone with a passion for architecture and interior design.
