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 in the late nineties and is now the Stockholm Mosque. 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.
