5. An Archeological Excavation Site

Inside the vault walkway towards the exit to Arsenalsgatan. Keep an eye on what looks like an excavation site on both sides of the walkway.

The artist has formed an archeological excavation site, of sorts, with antique columns and fragments – items that have been supplied by the Stockholm City Museum.

On the site, there are gas lanterns from the Stockholm gasworks on Torsgatan and anonymous construction remnants from vanished parts of Stockholm. You’ll also find an underground fountain that reminds us of the fountain in the park above.

On each sides of the vault, there are two sculptures. One of them represents the painting and the other represents the architect.
