Architecture in Sweden, a Survey of Swedish Architecture throughout the Ages and up to the Present Day

By August Hahr; J. S. Herrstreom | Go to book overview

PREFACE.

The following is a brief survey of Swedish architecture throughout the ages with particular stress on the building art of the last two centuries and especially of the last decades. Not only are the more monumental buildings such as churches, royal and private castles and palaces, State and other public buildings, banks and business houses included, but dwellings for ordinary people both in town and country are also described especially as, during the 19th century, such social questions were neglected, and buildings were erected in wild profusion only to be the object of reform in our day. A glance at the character of the dwellings of the bygones is thus motivated here and there. The survey is meant to be historical. Achievements of later epochs appear in direct line with the development. That which seems to be positive and profitable or that which has qualified legitimate demands is emphasized, while the reverse is censured. To draw a line through the past and stipulate a new epoch is not my meaning. In the account of what Swedish architecture has accomplished during the 19th and 20th centuries the works of Professor Ragnar Josephson, Professor Gregor Paulsson, the architect Hakon Ahlberg, and the authors Georg Nordensvan, Gotthard Johansson, and Gustav Näsström have been consulted.

Without mentioning names I wish to express my thanks to the many architects and institutions who have kindly assisted with photographs of which regrettably only a restricted number have been used.

The translation is done by Mrs. J. S. Herrström, a lady of English birth domiciled in Sweden.

Stockholm January 1938.

August Hahr.
