"The fair was significant in the history of architecture in Stockholm, firmly establishing functionalism as the dominant architectural style in Sweden."

"The two head architects were
Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz."

"All of the fair buildings were temporary. But the fair's ideas lived on and influenced the shape of Swedish housing for years to come."
