Kjellander + Sjöberg is an important part of new Swedish architecture. For more than ten years, they have created architecture far from the obvious that last over time after heavy daily use. This architecture revolves around housing, social issues about how we live our lives and our need to participate in public life. According to Kjellander + Sjöberg, architecture should come close. It should be practical and beautiful every day. “Kjellander + Sjöberg lets architecture be what it should be,” says Hans Ibelings in one of the book’s essays. The book Kjellander + Sjöberg Architects is part of the A+O series of books on Nordic Architects.
