The Courthouse Extension by Gunnar Asplund.

1

Erik Gunnar Asplund (1885 –1940) is my favorite Swedish architect. I've seen some of his works, but I have to admit that when I stepped inside the Extension of the Göteborg Courthouse (1917-37), my heart almost stopped! It is still working as courthouse, and if you ask for taking pictures there is no problem.
