About Anders Dahlgren

Anders Dahlgren is an art historian and an architect, and a PhD candidate in Art History and Visual Studies since September 2011. Dahlgren’s PhD project is about the art, architectural and urban historical project Svensk stad (Swedish Towns), published in two volumes in 1950 and 1953. The project was conducted by the Art History Professor Gregor Paulsson (1889-1977), but was a collective endeavour that included professionals from various academic disciplines. In the preface 15 people are mentioned as co-authors.

The PhD project investigates the historical and theoretical context of Svensk stad, how the project was carried out (the practice of research), how it has been received (the reception) and how it has influenced following architectural research and practice.
