Moderna Museet

Mikael Askergren © 1990

Architectural competition entry by Mikael Askergren in the international architectural competition for a new building for Moderna Museet and Arkitekturmuseet (the Swedish national museums of modernist art, and of architecture, respectively). The site: former navy docklands on the island of Skeppsholmen, right in the center of the nation’s waterfront capital city Stockholm.

The 1990 international architectural competition for Stockholm’s Moderna Museet was won by Spain’s Rafael Moneo. Mikael Askergren’s competition entry was later published in an anthology entitled Modus Operandi, published by the KTH School of Architecture, Stockholm, in 1995.
