Anders Bergström (b. 1965) is Associate Professor in the Theory and History of Architecture since 2008 at the KTH School of Architecture and the Built Environment, and research group manager at the Department of Architecture since 2015. Originally educated as an architect, he holds a PhD in History of Architecture (KTH 2001), and a Diploma in Architectural Conservation from the Royal Institute of Art (KKH 2004, 2023). He is responsible for the mandatory introductory course in History and Theory at undergraduate level since 2008, and teach elective seminar courses at graduate level, currently focusing on the 1930 Stockholm Exhibition, and the Stockholm Public Library. He is also co-supervising three doctoral students, with topics ranging from architectural education to conservation and museum transformation.

His research is based mainly on histories of knowledge, and on relationships between architecture and the humanities, ranging from professional and educational strategies, to preservation practices and critical historiographies. He was responsible for the sub area, Architects in Formation, within national research environment Architecture in Effect: Rethinking the Social in Architecture, directed by Professor Katja Grillner and funded by Formas (2011–2018), resulting in conference papers, peer-review articles and book chapters. Recent publications include a co-edited volume on the former building for the KTH School of Architecture (2020), a chapter on urban preservation in an age of environmental awareness (2023), and an anthology on architectural criticism by journalist Eva von Zweigbergk (in press 2024), all set in the 1960s.

Formerly focused on the interwar period, he is now completing a book on the Stockholm Public Library, as a result of a project funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond. This project has evolved into a collaboration with Dr. Patrick H. Fleming, ETH Zürich, managing a project on recovering the historical construction of the library, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, to be reported in Spring 2024.
