Tham & Videgard Arkitekter - The Operative Elements Of Architecture

Publisher Bokforlaget Arena

ISBN 9789178434282

Idea Code 14305

Based in Stockholm, Tham & Videgård Arkitekter believes that architecture is about the future, and considers buildings not only as contemporary, but also a form of continued history projected into that future. Co-founders Bolle Tham and Martin Videgård introduce 40 works and the principle ideas that guide their practice – from large-scale urban planning to buildings and interiors. Foremost is the lasting impact and building quality: long-term environmental effects, architectural integrity and function, and the capacity to convey societal ideals. Richly illustrated, featured projects include House Lagnö, Tree Hotel, Malmö and Kalmar art museums and the urban strategic plan for New Kiruna.
