Last Thursday before yoga class, I had wandered the campus of the Royal Institute of Technology. Having some spare time I decided to try and enter the new Architect School building. It was locked, but two students told me that Open House Stockholm would have an open day there on Saturday, and also in the decommissioned Reactor R1, which was the first nuclear reactor built in Sweden. That got my attention, I had wanted to see the place ever since I first heard about it ten years ago. I marked my calendar, and thought it could be fun to try to do some dance photos down there. My dance friend Jacqueline Sogell was keen to join me, so we decided to meet up just before 10:00 when it was opening.
Our next stop was the Architect School building, which also had open house.
Many thanks to Jacqueline for a fun photoshoot, and to Akademiska Hus, Open House Stockholm and Leif Handberg for letting us visit this historic location. Ps, the blog post name is pronounced “Science and Art are one”, a play on the motto of the Royal Institute of Technology — Science and Art, and the name of the reactor R1.
