Future People’s Palace – Remaking the Architecture of the Welfare State
This book begins where Fresh left off and presents a selection of Wingårdhs latest works, such as Nationalmuseum, Liljewalchs, Helsingborg Watertower, Basaren and Malmö Saluhall. It is edited by author and architect critic Mark Isitt and contains in-depth project interviews with the humans behind the architecture.
