Swedish Embassy Voted Washington's Favorite

H/T to John Brown's Public Diplomacy Press and Blog Review, which informs us that readers of the WaPo have voted for their favorite foreign embassy in Washington DC, and the winner is Sweden.

The Swedish embassy in Washington, DC has been named the city's best embassy by the readers of the Washington Post newspaper, by virtue of its design and programme of events.

The newspaper's 300,000 readers motivated their choice with respect to the Swedish embassy's "fantastic, different design", but also due to the active and diverse programme of events that are open to the general public.

Kudos to the Swedes. Personally, I think their embassy's architecture is only so-so, but I'm a big fan of their bookcases.
