The father of Hans Karl Asplund, Gunnar, was also an architect, who was a pioneer of modernism in Sweden, while his son, Hans, also belonged to this school early in his career. Later Hans Karl Asplund coined the term brutalism, which was derived from the French language and meant "raw concrete". He became a strong critic of modernism, systematically listing all the faults he saw in this style.
