The Wennergren center

The main reason to why I choose to take a picture of the Wenner-Gren centre is basically the architecture. Very futuristic for it´s time this building, finalized in 1961 with an adjoining apartmentcomplex around it, was built thanks to Axel Wenner-Gren. As president of Electrolux he wanted a centre where researchers and scientists could live.
The main building today consists of offices and different foundations run by the Wenner-Gren foundation.

The building is constructed as a sunwatch, ergo the triangular form of the house!

I'm intrigued by the colors, pink and blue, on the facade of this building. It's a lovely photo.
