Gert Wingårdh is already recognised as the most successful Swedish architect of all time, but he is not representative of a genuinely Swedish architecture. The outgoing architect’s work on the national and international stage is too cosmopolitan and his architectural solutions are too varied for that, demonstrating a wealth of ideas and frequent surprises. Because he is untrammelled by a predefined style or a fixed theoretical or conceptual orientation, with every new design he succeeds in finding the most suitable architectural language and the ideal expression for the task in hand. In the interests of its users, he places great emphasis not only on the functional but also on the aesthetic and atmospheric qualities of architecture—and regards the ecological sustainability of his buildings as quite indispensable.
