ArkDes presents Boxen, a new gallery space designed by the Stockholm-based studio Dehlin Brattgård Arkitekter. A key element in a series of ongoing transformations at the museum, Boxen is a platform for fast-changing, experimental exhibitions. It provides space for alternative voices to inspire discussions about architecture, design, and their relationship to society.

Dehlin Brattgård—one of Sweden’s most exciting emerging practices—have designed a structure that, through its architecture, creates a transformative experience both inside and around it. Steel, birch plywood, and wire mesh combine to create two distinct exhibitable environments: an interior white-box and a circulatory ramp, encouraging multiple views and perspectives between both visitors and the ideas on display.

Beginning today, Boxen will prompt radical and responsive installations, exhibitions, events and dialogues by and between architects, designers, and thinkers.

About ArkDes
Located in central Stockholm, ArkDes—Sweden’s national centre for architecture and design—is a museum, a study centre, and an arena for debate and discussion about the future of architecture, design, and citizenship. ArkDes is also a government authority with a unique mandate to advise, impact, and imagine future urban policies in Sweden. We care for and work with a significant national architecture collection and support a research platform dedicated to studying and responding to contemporary urban challenges. We aim to put citizens at the centre of the debate and look at the world through their eyes.
