Boxen is a new gallery space in ArkDes, the Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design, designed by the Stockholm-based studio Dehlin Brattgård Arkitekter. A key element in a series of ongoing transformations at the museum, Boxen is a platform for fast-changing, experimental exhibitions, providing space for alternative voices to inspire discussions about architecture, design, and their relationship to society.
Dehlin Brattgård have designed a structure that, through its architecture, creates a transformative experience both inside and around it. Steel, birch plywood, and wire mesh combine to create two distinct exhibitable environments: an interior white-box and a circulatory ramp, encouraging multiple views and perspectives between both visitors and the ideas on display.
Boxen prompts radical and responsive installations, exhibitions, events and dialogues by and between architects, designers, and thinkers.
