European cities boast some of the most impressive public spaces in the world. From the Piazza Navona in Rome to the Superkilen Urban Park in Copenhagen, civic spaces across the continent deserve to be celebrated for setting atmospheric tone and shifting a city’s overall culture.
Stockholm Public Library is a rotunda library building in Stockholm, Sweden, designed by Swedish architect Gunnar Asplund. The library was prepared from 1918 and onwards by a committee in which Asplund himself took part. Construction began in 1924, and the library was completed in 1928. In fact it was Sweden’s first public library to apply the principle of open shelves.
