1Lectures | On Sven-Ingvar Andersson | A Poetic Landscape Architect


The ‘dog ear’, the grass slope covering the above-ground entrance to the parking garage, designed by Sven-Ingvar Andersson.

Landscape architect Lodewijk Wiegersma talks about Sven-Ingvar Andersson in the first 1Lectures of 2019 on 31 January at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture . This renowned Swedish landscape architect (1927-2007) has been known for a considerable time as an excellent designer among landscape architects all over the world. Since the 1990s he also gained fame in Amsterdam for his design of the Museumplein.

In 1963 he became successor of the well known C.Th.Sørensen as professor at the School of Architecture in Copenhagen. His task was to continue on the successful path – Danish garden architecture has had an influence since the 1930s – together with finding his own signature. He found his own path by being poetic, artistic, never dogmatic and even humoristic. He loved to give his designs an unexpected twist. 

By describing and discussing a series of his main projects, urban- as well as small garden projects, among others his famous own garden in Sweden, the importance of his designs will be evident.

In 2018 Blauwdruk published the paperback ‘Sven-Ingvar’s Garden – And other essays on the oeuvre of Landscape Architect Sven-Ingvar Andersson’ , written by Lodewijk Wiegersma.
