biography | the architect at a glance

Born in 1885, Asplund's early projects such as the 1927 Stockholm Municipal Library, became icons of Scandinavian neoclassicism. His later works however, were marked by a restrained monumentality that echoed a new modernism. His Stockholm Crematorium constructed in 1940, is perhaps the finest example of monumental religious architecture of the 20th century.
