Stockholm Underground

Subway stations are usually designed in a clean and modernistic style in order to make people forget they are traveling deep underground. How different in the Stockholm subway, in which several of the deep underground stations are cut into solid rock which were left with cave-like ceilings.

Old nature meets next nature.

The fine 'cave paintings' make the finishing touch. Somehow I tend to feel safer in the Stockholm underground, could someone please build me an airplane in this fashion?

You mean a flying rock? ;)
Anyway... awesome environment!

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
