Give the Future Architects a Lesson in Ugliness

The scream
The scream

The picture says it all. Its resemblance to the Scream by Munch is somehow present.

I think that this building is one of the very first buildings I had identified as ugly. It is the famous Faculty of Architecture at the Royal Technical School at Stockholm. I think most natives from Stockholm would agree that this is the ugliest building in town (Other candidates are “Kulturhuset” and “Skatteskrapan”). It was an architect friend of mine who astonished me by letting me know that a) this is Brutalism and that b) she thought it was a great building.

This building also gets lots of points because it is, in my view, in the most beautiful neighbourhood en Stockholm. Adding to the splendour of the Engelbrecht (Engelbrechtskyrkan) and Danderydsgatan (My favourite street). Thank you wonderful building for removing the decadence from this neighbourhood.

Address : Östermalmsgatan 26, 100 44 Stockholm, Sweden
