Asplund, Erik Gunnar (Swedish architect and designer, 1885-1940)

Note: Asplund studied at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm between 1905 and 1909, then left for the Klara School, feeling the Institute too conservative. Throughout the teens and the first World War, he designed a variety of structures, including schools, storehouses, and tramsheds, with a style that was heavily influnced by Ragnar Östberg and French Neo-Classicism. Asplund frequently designed interiors and furniture as well. In 1930, with his designs for the Stockholm Exhibition, Asplund broke with classicism and began a Constructivist approach which, with that particular exhibit, began a Modernist movement in Sweden. Asplund designed cemetaries and crematoriums throughout his career.
