The Architecture Museum on Skeppsholmen, a small island previously used for naval purposes, occupies a former drill hall.  1000 years of Swedish architectural history are represented, along with changing exhibitions.  At our visit, there was a display of student industrial design work as well as an exhibition on the role of ornamentation in architecture.  The drill hall is a fantastic exhibition space, a large, well-lit volume of space with subtle interventions to facilitate the displays.  It was exciting to see the museum as a means of educating the general public about the importance of design.  The adjoining Modernamuseet, the museum of modern art, was designed by Rafael Moneo in 1991.  The scale and materiality of the addition plays a subordinate role to the historic military buildings scattered across Skeppsholmen.   dsc_0291
