165. Stockholm. Sergel Place with Obelisc



Dear Olof,

Sergels Torg Square in central Stockholm is fantastic!
The Cultural Center by Swedish modernist architect
Peter Celsing was designed like a huge vertical screen
with a glazed elevation facing the Square exposing the
structure of the building from the outside, and interior
details in wood. Through these large glass panes the
long floors exhibit their contents as well. Of course
after a while I went inside to take a better look.

Best regards.
