RECONSTRUCTING THE STOCKHOLM EXHIBITION 1930
The Stockholm Exhibition 1930 was the breakthrough of modernism in Sweden, and the beginning of a golden age for Swedish architecture that gained attention internationally. All of the exhibition was torn down after the summer and the documentation in drawings and photographs has been scant. Students and researchers at Chalmers Architecture have done detective work and with precision reconstructed the most important buildings in models in the scale of 1:50. Welcome to book launch and exhibition opening on Saturday 11th of June at 14-16!
The CEO of Arkitektur Förlag Malin Nasiell opens the model exhibition and Atli Magnus Seelow, architectural historian at Chalmers and author of the book, tells about the project together with Fredrik Nilsson, Head of Department of Architecture at Chalmers.
The book Reconstructing the Stockholm Exhibition 1930 can be purchased to book launch prize.
The project is part of the strong research environment 'Architecture in the Making', funded by Formas 2011-2016.
The exhibition of the models is open 11 June to 21 August in Studion, level 4.
Konstakademien, Fredsgatan 12 / Jakobsgatan 27 C (elevator).
Tuesday – Friday 11–17, Saturday – Sunday 12 –16.
