The Norwegian-Danish architect Svein Tønsager passed away in 2006, but lives on in his influence from the 1970s onward. This monograph offers a comprehensive look at Tønsager’s drawings, models, and works as part of a network of architects who explored the field of architectural drawings from a perspective somewhere between fantasy and reality. As a teacher at the School of Architecture in Aarhus, he invited peers such as Peter Cook, Lebbeus Woods, and Zaha Hadid to Scandinavia, thereby contributing to its international reputation and his own sources of inspiration. The book includes texts by Michael Sorkin, Christine Hawley, Carsten Thau, and others.
