The second volume of ‘Nordic Architects’, author David Sokol’s newly-released ‘Ebbs & Flows’ features the work of 60 leading offices on the Nordic architectural scene, showcasing the new wave in architecture – both for today and the future.

The book illustrates the latest works, as well as as-yet unbuilt competition entries, from studios such as BIG, Snøhetta and sandellsandberg, which are claiming a share of the global market with projects in South Korea, Russia, Saudi Arabia and the USA.

An important driving force in the current Nordic approach to architecture is in social and cultural integration – whether it be in regard to kindergartens in Sweden, community centres in Denmark or schools in Finland. In addition to this is the strong push towards sustainable urban life, which is a big theme in contemporary architecture, not only in Nordic countries, but also around the world. With the use of contextualism and multidisciplinary, participatory design as its methodology, architecture in this Nordic mindset is proving to be a strong catalyst of social integration and the future of cities.
