I was trawling the internet for beautiful examples of Sigurd Lewerentz’s work and came across my former university college – The Manchester School of Architecture, Continuity – and their blog of his work.

Often regarded as the master of brick, Lewerentz famously created St Mark’s church (pictured above) entirely of brick without cutting a single one, and created what some considered almost perfect, reflected in Adam Caruso’s Sigurd Lewerentz and a Material Basis for Form His wonderful arrangement of structures creates incredibly charged spaces which result in very successful schemes with no better example than Klippan.
