Sigurd Lewerentz. Architect of Death and Life


We at Park Books feel incredibly lucky to have an enthusiastic and devoted audience for our books that has sustained us as an independent publisher over the past years. To thank you for your ongoing support and interest in our list, we’ve prepared a new special-feature resource called Park Books Specials for you, where you’ll find two of our books at a discount price, available for a limited time until June 15!


The definitive monograph about Sigurd Lewerentz, an enigmatic figure in the modern history of architecture, was published last year in collaboration with ArkDes and sold out in no time. It is now available again—take a look at Park Books Specials for more on this special book and secure yourself a discounted copy!
