Through half a century Carl Nyrén won prestigious awards and was celebrated by critics all over the world. For the filmmaker Sven Blume he was a beloved grandfather. Carl often talked about architecture with his grandson and the house that he and grandmother Marianne lived in was a self-drawn masterpiece.

While Grandpa Calle is not alive anymore, his buildings remain open to the curiosity of his grandson.
