Martin Hedmark: A Modern Swedish Architect in America
April 2 @ 7:00pm
206 Waltham Street, Newton, MA 02465
Presented in association with the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art (ICAA) New England
Join architect Eric Inman Daum for an exploration of Swedish architect Martin Hedmark. Hedmark came to the U.S. in 1924 to launch his career, as an ecclesiastical architect for Swedish congregations and cultural institutions in America. His first commission was Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Providence. Explore the building’s unique expression of two distinct early 20th Century Nordic architectural styles and touch upon Hedmark’s other projects in New York, Worcester, Philadelphia and suburban New Jersey.
