Skalgubbar is collection of cut out people for architectural renderings


You know those little people who inhabit architectural renderings? Where the hell do they come from? I know one source now, it’s called Skalgubbar and it’s the passion project of Teodor Javanaud Emdén.

I started the project a few years ago and it has taken off fairly recently and my people who are my family and friends have now started to infiltrate the world of architecture. They are featured in a lot of architecture competitions projects (that I have seen 2013) and almost always in at least one shortlisted project.

The variety and range of people are incredible, anything from a person with a bouquet of balloons, an old woman holding giant mushrooms, or a man petting a black cat on the ground.
