Kulturhuset in Stockholm

The House of Culture (In Swedish: Kulturhuset) is a cultural centre to the south of Sergels torg in central Stockholm, Sweden. Opened in 1974 the House of Culture is today a symbol for Stockholm and the growth of modernism in Sweden.[1]


The House of Culture hosts many initiatives every year, with dozens of contemporary cultural events, including photo exhibitions, stories for kids, concerts, literary discussions, films, debates. It functions during daytime and nighttime.

The Stockholm City Theatre has since 1990 been placed in the building.

It was the temporary seat of the Riksdag until 1983, while the Riksdag building was remodelled for a unicameral legislature.

The House of Culture and Centre Pompidou in Paris are part of the same inspiration of modern culture.
