Gustaf Ferdinand Boberg (11 April 1860 – 7 May 1946) was a Swedish architect.[1]

Boberg was born in Falun. He became one of the most productive and prominent architects of Stockholm around the turn of the 20th century.[2] Among his most famous work is an electrical plant at Björns Trädgård in Stockholm, that was inspired by Middle Eastern architecture. The building was converted into a mosque in the late nineties. He also designed Nordiska Kompaniet, the most prominent department store in Stockholm and Rosenbad which today houses the Swedish government chancellery.[3]

Boberg died in Stockholm, aged 86.
