Architecture in Sweden, a Survey of Swedish Architecture throughout the Ages and up to the Present Day

with its small corner turrets inclines more to the Renaissance. The character of the interior is rendered by the old Nordic timber construction which gives the building a harsh, old-time atmosphere.

The memory of the previously named Exhibition which, at the time, roused considerable interest has by now undoubtedly volatilized. But it bore fruit of significance for the future. In the architect consortium, besides the two previous names and R. O. Svensson, was Arvid Bjerke who built the Carlander Hospital in traditional Swedish style. Of these, there remained after November 1921 only Eriksson and Bjerke. With the exception of the Arts and Crafts Building, with its exceptionally fine interior by the Stockholm architect Hakon Ahlberg, the Exhibition buildings were the outcome of collaboration between various Gothenburg architects. On Göta Place, constructed in connection with the Exhibition, was a building, now the Gothenburg Art Museum, which still lifts its classic pillar-arcade above the wide terrace and steps. This magnificent, decorative edifice with its superb perspective, its dominant position and limited inner space has under the leading of Professor A. L. Romdahl been contrived to meet the needs of a modern museum. Göta Place was then adorned with the gigantic Poseidon fountain by Milles. To this new place of representation the City Theatre and Concert House were recently added, but of these more will be said in another connection. Among the more monumental buildings of later date is included the Chalmers' Institute which is another fruit of the collaboration between younger architects.

The Gothenburg Exhibition left fewer traces behind it than did the Exhibition of 1930 at Stockholm whose leading architect was E. G. Asplund whom I have mentioned before. This most sensational and challenging exhibition ever held in Sweden gave a collective parade of ideas which in the new architecture of Germany, Holland, France and even in Sweden was already seeking to take form but, which, in our country, had then not yet succeeded in attracting attention.


XII.
LATEST DEVELOPMENTS.

The development Swedish architecture has undergone during the last ten years has undoubtedly followed to some great extent in the trend of the above Exhibition and largely in connection with a house production to meet a more general need, a domain which had particularly interested the Exhibition's architects.
