Grönlandet the buidling was completed in 1932, and is considered to be one of the most important modern buildings in Sweden. Many have visited the building in order to appreciate it as a work of art. We find ourselves confronted with a building where architectonic strength and beauty take centre stage, where irrationality prevails, where the office modules are of secondary importance and where asymmetry and irregularity are allowed to thrive within an overarching framework of symmetry and order.
The book Lewerentz. A Masterpiece is a richly illustrated book with many sketches and pictures from, among others, the ArkDes Lewerentz collection, the National Archives and the Nordic Museum.
