Musikenshus (Concert Hall) Uppsala, Sweden. Rick Shands, Architect Stockholm, Sweden 1992-1993. For many years, the university town of Uppsala had deliberated over having a concert hall built. Economics and its proximity to Stockholm often spoke against it. This proposal, drawn up as a PPP with one of Sweden's larger construction companies, was to make use of a 1940s school, no longer in use as a school but well-located on the same street as the central train station, the city hall and the Town Theater. The concert hall itself is situated on what was the school yard. The remainder of the school form offices, practice rooms, a cafe, and the original small auditorium became a recital hall.
