Crooked Lines Of Beauty
Sven Blume never wanted to be an architect. He associated it with the long workdays his mother Karen endured at her father’s Carl Nyrén office. This resulted in Sven’s disinterest in architecture as a whole. Though grandfather Carl has passed away, his buildings live on. Sven goes on a journey, visiting the many buildings designed by his grandfather, in the hope of learning something about the man beyond what was captured on those misty home recordings. The result is a travelogue that serves as testament to Nyrén’s ideals as an architect. Witty and touching, Crooked Lines of Beauty reminds of us of the humanity required to realize architecture worth preserving.
