KTH – Alfvén Hall

Finished 2018

“The Royal Institute of Technology's large auditorium F1 or Alfvénsalen, was completed in 1948. The new construction marked a new stage in KTH's history where the professor of architecture, Nils Ahrbom, took over the drawing work after Erik Lallerstedt. The auditorium building in red brick, which is connected to the higher physics building, is used mainly for teaching. It consists of foyer, auditorium with technical room and basement. The internally dominant material is oak. The building is well preserved, both interior and exterior. It has high cultural values, among others the architectural-historical and architectural values ​​stand out, both reinforced by pedagogical values ​​and quality values ​​”Claes Reichmann, Reichmann antikvarier AB.
