Eric de Maré: Scandinavia

Although Eric de Maré was born in England, his parents were Swedish and he enjoyed a lifelong fascination with Scandinavia, becoming regarded as an authority on Swedish architecture. He made frequent trips there and wrote about it, for The Architectural Review as well as penning 'Scandinavia: Sweden, Denmark and Norway' (1952) and the monograph, 'Gunnar Asplund' (1955).
