Fyr Falsterbo [1796]

The lighthouse is very close to the wonderful beaches of Falsterbo in the very south west tip of Skåne. It was designed by the architect Olof Tempelman [1745-1816] and built at the end of the 18th century. It has a classicist style (colossal column on a square base), built of fired wall brick. In the early years, the lighthouse was coal fired, almost halve a century later oil lamps were installed. (1843) and it took nearly hundred years before the lighthouse was electrified (1935)!
Initially, the lighthouse operator lived with his family in the lighthouse itself. 1843 a house was constructed next to it for them to live in.
Falsterbo´s lighthouse is the oldest one in Scandinavia and a listed building since 1935. Still today, almost 320 years after it was built, it is in operation and has a well maintained appearance.

Kristallen


The new glass building housing Lunds Kommun services is the touchstone for the development of a new area, right in Lund's downtown. Is it a metaphore for the Kommun's transparency? Anyway, I was there a few months ago for a meeting to start a project that was just now finished. More to come.

Ales Stenar


Early in the summer, I got back to Ales Stenar for the Midsommar's sunset. There are always all sorts of people going there at that day. This time, on the way back we met a group of indian backpackers and a swedish girl getting ready to spend the night there. The sky should be a wonderful sight there!

Countryside in Värmland


Karlstad


Scandinavia´s longest river is the Göta älv - Klarälven; in between is the lake Vänern. Klarälven ["The clear river"] flows through both Norway and Sweden.  
Värmlands capital city Karlstad was built on the river delta with the Vänern.

The arrow on the sketch points at the newly built Karlstad Congress Culture Centre, Karlstad CCC in short, designed by the architects Bergfjord and Ivarson [Tengbom Group]. The building was built by SPP Fastigheter AB and received Karlstads kommuns byggnadspris 2011.
