About my "well known" relative - the architect
There was a Lars Sonck, an architect living here in Finland (1870 – 1956) He was one of the leading Jugend architects and was actually quite well-known, even internationally for his churches and cathedrals (see Wikipedia). We were relatives but of different familly branches already since the early eighteen hundreds and we did not know each other - my father and the older generation did.
Here is a short clipping about The architect;
Lars Eliel Sonck was born in Kalvia, Finland in 1870. He graduated from Helsinki's PolytechnicInstitute in 1894 and immediately won a major competition for a church in Turku.
Sonck ignored the growing trend toward architectural rationalism. Instead, he borrowed from the historical tradition of Finland's medieval stone structures and residential wood based architecture. His more monumental commissions show the influence of a neo-Romanesque style.
