One of Malmös oldest electricity plants.
During the early 1900s, the energy demand was great for Malmö, which at this time was a booming industrialized city. Malmö Elektricitetsverk stood completed in 1901, and the architect behind the building is John Smedberg. Before Malmö Elektricitetsverk was built, there was a gas plant on the same plot of land. The gas plant owners were Gaslysnings AB, formed in Malmö in 1852.
In 1884, the gas plant was taken over by the city of Malmö. The gas work was closed down and demolished after the City of Malmö's new gasworks at S: t Knuts väg was commissioned in 1898.
The old electricity plant existed until 1988 when it was transformed into an art gallery known as Rooseum. The art gallery Rooseum itself was started in 1988 by the art collector Fredrik Roos, who, with the help of a loan, realized his vision with an art museum in Malmö. In 1991, the family took over after Fredrik died. The art gallery was mainly able to survive with the help of a foundation consisting of the family Roos, Malmö City, and Louisiana(art institution from Copenhagen). However, it didn't go too well, and in 2009 Moderna muséet took over the building. Moderna muséeet renovated the building, and they host a magnitude of art installations to this day.
