I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Arkitekturmuseet


Wandering back from the bathrooms, I passed this wall display and assumed that this was the back of the museum store or some kind of children's room.

But this was actually the main exhibit in the adjoining architecture museum, called Provisions. I was intrigued, so I wandered there instead of going back to the modern art exhibits.

It's a quirky little museum, not at all what I was expecting. The permanent collection has examples -- models, photos, plans -- of architecture through the ages. The provisions exhibit presents architecture and design as staples of life by presenting them in grocery store format. We're all both citizens and consumers -- how do the two roles intersect? It was both interesting and fun.
