ArkDes is Sweden’s national centre for architecture and design. ArkDes is a museum, a study centre and an arena for debate and discussion about the future of architecture, design and citizenship. Here you can see what’s going on at ArkDes and buy selected posters from the museum.
ArkDes aims to achieve its mission through exhibitions, events and debates at the museum and across the country, through education programmes, and through making the world class collection and library available to researchers and scholars.
As well as its museum functions, ArkDes has a special role from the government that aims to help positively affect architectural quality in Sweden. This is known as the Mötesplats – a meeting place for debate and research about architecture and urbanism in Sweden.
