Back not to school

Today I visited Stockholm University to speak with an ethnology professor, Mattias Frihammar, who has written about Greta Garbo’s grave at Skogskyrkogården. It was weird to be on a University campus as an “college grad,” but I am attending a Heritage of Death conference he is organizing there two weeks from now, so at least then I can pretend am still a student again. Shoutout to my Rice friends starting school on Monday!

Pictured here are some old drawings of different proposals architects made of Skogskyrkogården before Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz’s final design was chosen.
