You've got to admire the Swedes' ability to turn lemons into lemonade. In 1628 the King commissioned a new battle ship, the Vasa. It was top-heavy and designed by someone who had never designed a ship before. On its maiden voyage it sailed for 15 minutes, capsized and sank. 350 years later, the Vasa was found, salvaged and preserved. It is now Stockholm's #1 tourist attraction.

I got a good laugh out of these guys. Let's pretend you are a Stockholm building owner.
What would lead you to commission this group for your building?
