Sigurd Lewerentz

(b. Bjarta, Sweden 1885; d. Lund, Sweden 1975)

Lewerentz was an important early modernist in Sweden who collaborated with Erik Gunnar Asplund, together winning the Woodland Cemetery competition in 1914. The Chapel of the Resurrection at Woodland by Lewerentz is considered perhaps his greatest work.

In the 1940s and 1950s Lewerentz worked in door and window production, and then again designed admired buildings in the 1950s and 1960s.

Lewerentz died in Lund, Sweden in 1975.
