Y is for "Your Mind Afloat" with Gothenburg's Opera, Sweden

For letter "Y" --

"Your mind afloat" is the vision of the architect Jan Izikowitz for the Gothenburg Opera. He said:

The building should be possessed by an airiness that sends your mind soaring 
across the meandering landscape like wings of seagulls.

I sent this postcard design to several people (including myself) while I was in Gothenburg last week. Now I am excited to receive it from the post.

Do you think the architect was able to realize his vision with this work?



  1. Sure. I'd like to see the inside too.

  2. Hi Maria, This card is a beauty. Interestingly, it reminds me of a place here on Puget Sound. I think architects are inspired by waterfront locations!
