Sigurd Lewerentz: Two Churches – Två kyrkor (Arkitektur Förlag AB, 1997) is a detailed analysis of Lewerentz’s acclaimed Markuskyrkan and S.t Petri kyrka. Essays by Claes Caldenby, Adam Caruso, and Sven Ivar Lind.
This book is a portrait of two churches with photographs and three essays. Two of them are newly written: Claes Caldenby sketches the essential features of the man and his work, while Adam Caruso presents a younger generations view of Lewerentz’s reduced architectural language. The third essay is a reprint of Sven Ivar Lind’s classic text from 1963, originally published in the Swedish magazine Arkitektur.
The book is bilingual in English and Swedish and lavishly illustrated with photographs and architectural drawings.
