Sverre Fehn: works, projects, writings, 1949-1996
Monacelli Press, Sep 1, 1997 - Architecture - 275 pages
This comprehensive monograph presents fifty projects from throughout the four decades of Fehn's career. Featured are such important works as the Archbishopric Museum of Hamar, the Glacier Museum in Fjaerland, and the Aukrust Museum in Alvdal, all in Norway. Also included are a number of houses and several competition projects, both built and unbuilt. Each of the works in this volume is illustrated with extensive photography, presentation drawings, and Fehn's signature sketches. Complementing the architectural projects are essays by Francesco Dal Co, Christian Norberg-Schulz, and Gennaro Postiglione, which present an analytic portrait of the architect's career, and an anthology of writings by Fehn and critics.
