A contemporary of Walter Gropius and Le Corbusier, Gunnar Asplund pursued a unique architecture that displayed a blend of classical tradition, vernacular architecture and Modernism. ove all, he achieved a sensitive understanding of the relationship between architecture and its surrounding landscape, and it is such contributions that have made him recognized as Sweden's leading architect of the twentieth century. His ilities are amply demonstrated in masterpieces like the Woodland Cemetery. This comprehensive monograph includes extensive new colour photography as well as many original drawings. It was produced in colloration with the archives of the Swedish Architectural Museum in Stockholm. There is no other book currently in print dedicated solely to the work of Gunnar Asplund.

"This well-written and beautifully illustrated book is worth every penny."- The Architectural Review
"What is fascinating is that [Asplund's] 28 working years spanned four very different architectural styles and he was a master in each. Peter Blundell Jones' book elucidates how these transitions of style were inextricably linked to the social and political ideas of the time."- Architecture Today
"Asplund's discreet forms, use of natural materials, and sensitivity to site seem more pertinent than ever."- Elle Decor
"[Asplund] could hardly have wished for a finer testimonial than this thoroughly researched and sympathetically written monograph."- Richard Weston, Architects' Journal
"Lucid, thoughtful and inspiring, this is a model of architectural writing that brings home on every page the significance of its subject. Asplund is too big a name to be forgotten."- World of Interiors
