Malmo might not be as popular a holiday destination as Stockholm or Gothenburg, but its youthful population and proximity to Copenhagen over the famous bridge make it an excellent choice for a weekend getaway. Whether you base yourself in Malmo itself or in the Danish capital over the water, allow yourself several hours to slowly stroll the streets, admiring both traditional and contemporary architecture.

The most iconic structure that you will encounter is the Turning Torso, the highest building in Malmo. Named one of the best residential buildings in the world, its spiralling design is an iconic feature on the Malmo skyline. Admire from afar, but ensure that you get up close to be able to look up and view the tower twisting above you.

Away from the Western Harbour, striking contemporary buildings are scattered around the centre of Malmo. Make time to visit City Library, the Konsthall, Triangeln Station and Moderna museet to view some of the most exciting examples of modern architecture in the city. During your walk, ensure to explore the side streets in hope of discovering more discreet architectural gems.

Andrès Gallardo’s photography of architecture in Malmo looks closer than the traditional view of buildings. His ‘Urban Geometry’ series focuses on the city’s modern structures, concentrating predominantly on glass. Rather than taking simple shots of structures, Gallardo zooms in and finds beauty and intrigue in unusual angles, strong lines and intriguing close-ups.

When meandering around Malmo, you will be struck by the fusion of old and new; shiny new structures dotted amongst much older buildings. Gallardo’s imagery portrays Malmo as a futuristic city, concentrating on details of the most modern buildings. His shots urge you to take your time exploring the city and to focus on appreciating the smaller details.
