Item description for Gert Wingardh, architect by Gert Wingardh, Rasmus Waern & Rasmus Wrn...
The architecture of Gert Wingrdh is reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright in its bright spaciousness, and the aesthetically pleasing details would be worthy of Carlo Scarpa. His buildings do not stubbornly adhere to one style but respond to the task in hand and the surrounding environmental conditions. Sweden's rich tradition of building with wood and a strong ecological awareness are combined with high tech expertise. With successful projects such as the school building in Ndinge, the control tower at Stockholm's Arlanda airport, the science centre in Gothenburg, Ericsson's office in London, and the chancellery at the Swedish Embassy in Berlin, Wingrdh has become Sweden's most prominent architect, heading his own architectural firm with offices in Gothenburg and Stockholm since 1977.
