sigurd lewerentz, östra kyrkogården, 1916

colonnade of trees, eastern cemetery, malmö, 1916-1969.

architect: sigurd lewerentz, 1885-1975.

 

neo-classicist lewerentz has little of the asplundian let-me-take-you-by-the-hand-and-guide-you-through-the-rituals-of-the-wellfare-state...in malmö's eastern cemetery, the sense of loss is maintained rather than alleviated by the formality of lewerentz' landscape planning: this is a place for mourning, not your sunday stroll.
