Mr Funkis

On the basis of a 1969 radio interview, Mr. Funkis paints a portrait of the Swedish architect Sven Markelius (1889-1972), one of the founders of the CIAM platform for functionalists. Featuring some wonderful designs, such as the Helsingborg Concert Hall, a functionalist suburb, furniture and curtains. In 1937, Markelius made a political statement with his design for a community centre for working women. He lived there himself for 30 years, ensuring that the principle of equality was supported by a well-functioning building. Softer forms and materials began to creep into his work in the mid-1960s, such as zig-zag-shaped copper sheets on facades.
