THE BLACK BOX When Lewerentz's wife Edith died (March 17, 1969), he moved in 1970 to Kävlingevägen 26 in Lund. He was able to do this thanks to the appreciation of a young colleague, the architect Klas Anselm, who not only gave him free use of a house he owned, but also converted and expanded it to meet Lewerentz's needs. The most important change was the construction of a studio in the garden. It became a tar-scented box with floors of spruce boards, the walls were made of asphalt- impregnated wood fiber boards and the roof was covered with aluminum cardboard. Three plastic domes on the diagonal provided light, but not transparency. In one corner was a door that led out into the garden. Its design explains the name - The Black Box
