This appears to be just your average residential block. But it's located on Lappkärrsberget (commonly known as "Lappis"), a housing area dedicated to student's lodgings. On Tuesdays at 10 p.m. the students will open their windows and a primal scream will wipe out all other city sounds. It's an understanding they all have, to join in on a cry in an attempt to diminish the anxiety-ridden feelings connected to studying. You can also watch a Youtube video of the phenomenon here.
