AFRY Building

From a distance, this structure looks like an ordinary office building but a closer inspection reveals a unique facade.  


Not all things are as they first appear, and this building is the perfect example of that concept.

From a distance, this structure appears to be another ordinary office building, that is until visitors get a closer look. Decorated across the facade of the building are math and physics formulas. The structure also happens to be the headquarters of the technology consultancy company AFRY.

Graphic concrete was used by the architect to embed patterns into the concrete. From a distance, the formulas appear to be fine lines of texts, they are in fact, letters, numbers, and signs that make up the foundation of maths and physics. 

Know Before You Go

AFRY's headquarters are found in Solna, right next to the E4 highway. It's a short walk from the commuter train station, Solna station. The building is accessible 24/7.
