1717. Stockholmsutställningen 1930

Dear Anne,

"(...) my parents went to visit the grand exhibition 
in Stockholm in 1930. (...) There they were exposed 
to a new and simple, white architecture that drew in 
light and air, one that let in the sunshine and paid 
homage to the practicality, the uncovered- you might 
call it the functionalist. This was evident in Gunnar 
Asplund's exhibition buildings that were made with 
light constructions and emanating something 
completely new in Scandinavia.(...) (Jörn Utzon)
