The Röhsska Museum’s exhibitions turn the perspectives to create meaning in the story told by objects and form.

Temporary exhibition

Architecture Projects: Brunnsparken

5 JUNE 2021- 26 SEPTEMBER 2021

Visions for the Brunnsparken of the future differ wildly when architects are given a free hand to speculate around the future of one of Gothenburg’s most talked-about spaces.
