Product Details


"[Sverre Fehn’s] talent for applying Modernist ideas to traditional Nordic forms and materials earned him the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1997 and made him the most prominent Norwegian architect of the postwar era."
New York Times

"[Sverre Fehn: The Pattern of Thoughts is] a wonderful, very complete tribute to a great architect and interesting person written by a devoted admirer. If you’re a fan, it’s well worth your time."


Pritzker Architecture Prize WINNER 1997
