Flying Panels
How Concrete Panels Changed the World

Until 1 March 2020

Housing billions of people, apartment blocks made of prefabricated concrete panels are one of the most common buildings in the world. Flying Panels – How Concrete Panels Changed the World tells of the time when a concrete panel soaring across the sky symbolised the future and embodied dreams of a better world. The exhibition also tells of the concrete panel systems in contemporary architecture.

Free admission.

Flying Panels gives an account of the evolution of the concrete panel, a building component often derided as the ugly face of our cities. But in the optimistic post-war period, the panel would build the future, cure the housing shortage and raise living standards for millions of people. The prefabricated concrete panels were at the heart of construction systems that spread to over 70 countries following the Second World War. The systems were further developed and adapted to local needs and circumstances in the different countries, with the new technique providing almost endless scope for variation.

Images of flying concrete panels were frequent in the 1950s and ‘60s. The exhibition illustrates the cultural impact and dissemination of the panels through examples of poster art, paintings, films, toys, cartoons and opera sets. A focal point of the exhibition is a suspended 1:5-scale model of one of the most representative concrete panel systems. Other key features are models of 60 modular systems from six continents.

Flying Panels is the result of years of research by curators Pedro Ignacio Alonso and Hugo Palmarola, who have gathered original material and catalogued and produced 3D models of concrete panel systems used across the world. The exhibition also outlines the history of concrete panels in Sweden, from the Million Programme and standardisation to the television series Hammarkullen.

Guided Tour: Architecture in Focus – Tensta

11:00  Tensta


Tensta was one of many new districts that emerged in the Stockholm region in the 1960s. And after just two years of construction, the first tenants were able to move into apartments there. Stadsmuseet (The Stockholm City Museum) has recreated the apartment of the Artursson family, who moved to Tensta in January 1969. Everything has been recreated, from their furniture, books, records and magazines to the canned foods in their pantry. This tour will allow you to experience how everyday life may have been for a family at the time Olof Palme first became prime minister, Swedish TV had only two channels, 1 öre coins were still in circulation and milk in Stockholm was delivered by the dairy cooperative, Mjölkcentralen (The Milk Central). The guided tour will be led by Eva Larsson, architectural historian. Price 120 kronor. Tickets can be purchased through Stadsmuseet. NOTE: The tour will be conducted in Swedish.Read more about the guided tour and book tickets here.



This autumn, Stadsarkivet (Stockholm City Archives) and Stadsmuseet (The Stockholm City Museum) will be presenting a number of exciting lectures, events and guided tours in collaboration with ArkDes and in connection with the exhibition Flying Panels – How Concrete Panels Changed the World (18 October 2019 – 1 March 2020).
