About Michael Sheridan
Michael Sheridan (born 1968) is a New York-based architect and writer, who has dedicated his professional life to research in 20th-century Nordic architecture and design.
In Denmark and Sweden, Michael Sheridan is a well-known face due to his appearance in the TV series Enestående Nordiske Huse (Outstanding Nordic Houses), but it is first and foremost his profound and beautiful books about Danish masterworks such as Room 606 – The SAS house and the work of Arne Jacobsen 2003, Poul Kjærholm – Furniture Architect 2006, Mesterværker – Enfamiliehuset i dansk arkitekturs guldalder (Landmarks – The Modern House in Denmark) 2012, that have given him a strong position among scholarly observers of Nordic architecture and design.
Michael Sheridan has lectured all over Scandinavia on the 20th-century masters of Finnish, Swedish and Danish architecture and furniture design. He always leaves a distinctive impression on his audience, due to his in-depth knowledge and polemic attitude towards the contemporary Nordic scene, which in his eyes has lost sight of the treasures of its own backyard.
