Sigurd Lewerentz’s Chapel of Resurrection, Stockholm

"When I visited this chapel as a young architect I was captivated by its unconventional mannerist composition – a meeting of Architectural Functionalism and National Romanticism. It caused me to question much of the accepted wisdom of what I thought I knew. At the time I secretly liked it – but found myself unable to explain why. Years later I now understand that I had visited the work of a master of sacred architecture."
