»You could ask yourself why there weren’t more iconic buildings in Stockholm. Was Léonie Geisendorf too bold, too nondiplomatic? Did she make herself impossible? Or maybe Sweden wasn’t ready for Léonie Geisendorf’s expressive architecture yet?« – Charlie
One of architect Charlie Gullström’s research areas is about Léonie Geisendorf (1914–2016), a collaborator of hers since the 90’s. Right now Charlie is writing a book with the working title ‘Women in the making of modernity – Architect Léonie Geisendorf’s pioneering collaborative practice across Europe’.
