Ferdinand Boberg
Birth: Apr. 11, 1860
Death: May 7, 1946

Architect. Born Gustaf Ferdinand Boberg in Falun, Sweden. His continuing study of design made him one of the most widely traveled architects of his time, attending expositions in Turin, Chicago, and Paris among others. It was in Paris that he met his future wife, the artist Anna Scholander, in 1884. They were married in 1888. His design preference, which might be called a stylized Queen Anne, became quite popular. Any number of his buildings still stand, including Nordiska Kompaniet, a prominent department store in Stockholm; the Rosenbad, which houses the Swedish government chancellery; the Waldenarsudde in Djurgården, which was built for the artist Prince Eugene, now a museum; and the Swedish Pavilion built as an international exposition building for the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, Missouri, now an Historic Registry building in Kansas. It has been suggested the his aesthetic, tempered by his wife's influence, could be seen as a precursor to Scandinavian modern design. In 1925, the couple was forced to sell their home of 20 years on Södra Djurgården, which had been designed by him. They traveled before returning to Stockholm in 1929, where his wife died following gall bladder surgery in 1935. He survived her for just over a decade passing at the age of 86. He left a legacy that named him one of the dominant architectural forces of his generation, not only in Sweden, but internationally as well. (bio by: Iola)
