Erskine at Stockholm University
On a Sunny Sunday afternoon, we decided to take a trip to the Stockholm University Campus (Axel's alma mater) to check out the Erskine Buildings. Surprisingly elegant are his buildings set against cheezy buildings from the 70s & 80s and extreme traditional buildings from earlier period.
A quick snaphot of the campus map. Interesting organic form that follows the contour of island that its located in.
Like all buildings on this
campus, this was closed.
Summer classes are not a
huge concept here...
but managed to snuck into the main entrance for some quick photos:
ALLHUSET: The main student center. Also closed.

Side entrance & seating. LOVE the shading method.
AULA MAGNA: Campus Auditorium/lecture hall
Entrance to Aula Magna, auditorium on campus.
