303. Stockholm. Stadsbiblioteket

Dear Tanu,

"Today's architectural will, when it is as its best, proceeds
towards subordinating detail, an ordering of all
heterogeneous needs and demands and dimensions, to a
strong architectural grip around a central idea: it seeks order
and character" (Gunnar Asplund)
Almost a manifesto for the magnificent Stockholm Public
Library that he designed in 1928.

Best regards.
