"Stadsbiblioteket (City Library)" Stockholm Favorite Tip by yooperprof
Stockholm General: 347 reviews and 384 photos
Favorite thing: The City Library - in the Vasastaden neighborhood - is an interesting example of "stripped down" neo-classicism in architecture. It epitomizes the cool, sleek design for which Sweden is famous. Gunnar Asplund took the basic elements found in the 19th century neo-romantic "Kastlellet" in the middle of the sound and adapted them for his purposes. Both buildings have a squat semi-rectangular base topped by a round turret. Both buildings well represent the spirit of their time.
