Sverre Fehn: The Pattern of Thoughts Book

Per Olaf Fjeld

Enjoy a talk and lecture by Per Olaf Fjeld at Scandinavia House in New York City on September 21.

As recipient of the 1997 Pritzker Architecture Prize – the profession’s highest honor – architect Sverre Fehn received critical acclaim in his native Norway and internationally. His projects, often described as being instilled with a human quality, were strongly influenced by Scandinavia’s breathtaking landscape and light conditions.

Sverre Fehn: The Pattern of Thoughts provides an intimate glimpse into the world of this great post-war modernist architect known for his design sensibility and complex creative process.

Oslo School of Architecture and Design Professor Per Olaf Fjeld presents both biography and perceptive critiques as he covers Fehn’s unique approach to architecture.

Fjeld was born in Kongsvinger, Norway. He studied architecture at Washington State University and University of Pennsylvania from where he graduated as an architect (Master of Arch.) in 1973. He worked in Sverre Fehn’s office from 1973 to 1975 before opening his own office in Oslo the same year. Some of his projects include Oslo City Museum, Oslo Theatre Museum, and a number of residential properties, villas, additions and conversions, in addition to a small production of furniture.
