What is Skalgubbar?

A steadily growing and carefully curated collection of cut out people by Teodor Javanaud Emdén and all the fantastic people he knows. Made to bring visualizations of unbuilt architecture to life. It’s a personal project that follows his everyday life. Yes, he knows all of the people and call them friends.


How to use Skalgubbar / License

Skalgubbar is free to use for anyone who wants to bring their visualizations of unbuilt architecture to life. For students as well as for commercial use.

Main guideline: Your architecture project should be in focus. Skalgubbar is not to be used as free standing pictures or for product advertisements. Have a look at these projects to see some good examples of usage.

If Skalgubbar is part of your architectural academic publication (e.g. master thesis) or other publication where sources are being mentioned, you should also credit Skalgubbar with a link to

If you intend to use Skalgubbar for anything else than populating visualizations of architecture projects – please do not, since this is not part of the free license. If you have questions or if Skalgubbar and your non-architecture project really is a match made in heaven, send a mail to first.



Who runs Skalgubbar?

My name is Teodor Javanaud Emdén, I’m a freshly baked architect from Sweden currently working at Snøhetta. I’m all about the future and human scale in architecture. Feel free to contact me about anything.



If you like Skalgubbar and want to support the project, please buy some stuff from the Shop! Everything goes into making the project better.
