This book celebrates established icons, newly discovered gems and contemporary masterworks that represent the highest expression of Scandinavian design and response to their environment.

Fifty projects are featured in detail, ordered according to the way in which different light conditions have imparted particular qualities on the buildings.

Henry Plummer treats his subject from a uniquely authoritative perspective in which his words resonate directly with his artfully taken images. Among the buildings featured are Arne Jacobsens town hall in Århus, Denmark, Alvar Aaltos Villa Mairea in Finland, Klas Anshelms Malmö Konsthall in Sweden, and many others. Each chapter features an introduction, which traces the nature, quality and cultural history of that aspect of light.
