MALMÖ KONSTHALL was opened in 1975 and is one of Europe’s largest exhibition halls for contemporary art. Architect Klas Anshelm has created an exhibition hall with great flexibility, generous space and fantastic light. The construction materials are light and simple: concrete, glass, wood and aluminium. Most of the gallery has a ceiling constructed like a latticework of 550 domes with both natural and artificial light sources. The height of the ceiling varies. The light well - with the higher ceiling - has a big sloping skylight towards the north. Klas Anshelm got inspiration for the construction when visiting the sculptor Constantin Brancusi in his Paris studio. The result is a gallery that is both functional and aesthetic. An exhibition space that presents the artist with endless possibilities. was renovated in 1994. At that time the exhibition hall and the adjacent older brick building known as Hantverkshuset (the Craft Building) were linked together. This created new spaces for a bookshop, restaurant, Hall C and space for children’s activities as well as a smaller exhibition space called Mellanrummet (the In-between Space).

Nationalmuseum is not only Sweden’s largest art museum. In itself, the building is a striking feature of the Stockholm cityscape. Its architectural design, modelled on that of Florentine and Venetian Renaissance buildings, evokes Italy - the home of the fine arts. The history of the collections dates back to the 16th century.
