Scandinavian Modern Houses volume 2 presents in cooperation with Per Nagel his photographs of some of the most significant Scandinavian private houses built during the 20th century. These house were built to elucidate the distinctive character of Nordic architecture. Also these houses show how Nordic architects have incorporated one of the most important elements for Scandinavian architecture - namely the light! This sensibility for the different tonal qualities of light, and the extremely conscious use of light as the most important formproducing and spacedefining element, is perhaps the most remarkable common feature of Nordic architecture - the spirit of Nordic light! The houses presented are very different and were built in a span of time from the 1930's until today. They are all strikingly modern - the power and quality of their architecture make them timeless.
