This is one of Asplund’s most famous buildings. It was built in the year 1917 in Solvesborg, Sweden. It has an urban context with a Mannerist style. This building is the most theatrical  building that Asplund ever built.  The thing that makes the building so theatrical is the  design that he gave the four faades. They each have a different  characteristic to them that makes the theatrical feel so apparent. They are designed like stage sets that do not relate to one another or tell much about what is happening.

  1. That last photo of the entryway is super interesting. It almost looks like little fish scales on the window!
