Chippo still in the mix as Nobel Center schemes revealed

The eleven shortlisted designs for the new Nobel Center building on Stockholm’s waterfront have been revealed

The so-far anonymous entries, which include one by David Chipperfield Architects, are for the 20,000m² building on the capital’s Blasieholmsudden peninsula which will house exhibition and events celebrating the Nobel Prize.

A twelve-strong shortlist was first announced in March (AJ 21.03.13). Among others joining Chipperfield are 3XN, OMA and Snøhetta but Herzog de Meuron has ‘decided not to participate in the competition.’

The shortlist

  • 3XN, Denmark
  • BIG, Denmark
  • David Chipperfield Architects, England/Germany
  • Johan Celsing Arkitektkontor, Sweden
  • Lacaton & Vassal Architectes, France
