There is an entry for him in the Great Buildings database. Start there. The mongraph that I have was published by the MIT press.

He was a contemporary of Asplund, and in fact they designed and won the woodlawn cemetary competition together, and later both completed chapels on the grounds. They both worked through the transition from romantic classicism to early modernism which is what makes both of their works so interesting to me. But I like Lewerentz's later work best of all.
