The Architecture of Claesson Koivisto Rune presented at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts

16 October – 20 November 2021

Almost 30 years ago, Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto and Ola Rune founded what would become one of Sweden’s most internationally renowned architecture practices. Since then they have received more than 90 awards for their architecture and design as well as becoming the first Swedish practice selected for the international section at the Venice Biennale of Architecture, in 2004. In 2020, HM King of Sweden Carl XVI Gustaf presented them with The Prince Eugen Medal for outstanding artistic achievement in architecture.

This retrospective exhibition presents, for the first time, a thorough overview of the studio’s architectural production, including 40 scale models generated during the preceding 27 years of work.

The exhibition design is by Claesson Koivisto Rune, graphic design by Henrik Nygren Design, photography by Åke E:son Lindman and others.
