They're Gunnar get you

For fans of all things Swedish – particularly things of the ‘amateur’ variety – a visit to www.arkitekt.se/asplund is an absolute must. Here you’ll find all 1,160 entries for the competition to design a £60 million extension for Gunnar Asplund’s much-loved public library in Stockholm. The entries range from the odd to the moderately exciting to the downright rubbish. In fact there’s quite a lot of utter bobbins. Yet, as we at the AJ have found to our cost, ploughing through the reams of anonymous schemes is strangely compelling. You have been warned.
