The exhibition is a chronology of Swedish architecture told through detailed and richly beautiful models from the ArkDes collection. There are works here by Sweden’s most famous architects, from the golden age of Swedish modernism and more.

More than 80 models portray architectural ideas, urban plans and construction methods, from 9th century stone churches, Rococo summer houses, the extraordinary engineering of the Katarina elevator, the rise of modernism in Sweden after World War II and much more.

Architecture in Sweden is suitable for all ages, and fascinating for anyone interested in Swedish cities and buildings. There is loads of in-depth information to explore, through the drawings, study models and other materials in the drawers under the plinths.

Exhibition Design: Anna von Schewen och Björn Dahlström
