Chipperfield's latest designs in Nobel Centre race revealed

David Chipperfield Architects has revealed its revised entry into the prestigious contest for Stockholm’s new Nobel Centre

The RIBA Gold Medallist and the two rival shortlisted studios – Sweden’s Wingårdhs arkitekter and Johan Celsing Arkitektkontor – were asked to scale down their 20,000m² proposals during the competition’s second stage. 

Planned to open in 2018, the headquarters on the Blasieholmsudden peninsula will include exhibition spaces, meeting rooms, a library, restaurant, shop and a large auditorium where the annual Nobel Prize award ceremony will take place.

Nobel Foundation executive director and chair of the competition jury, Lars Heikensten said: ‘This is an exciting process we are in, and obviously a lot can still happen with the proposals.

‘We look forward to announcing the winning architectural office during the spring and we look forward to initiating a partnership that will result in a new home for the Nobel Prize and a new public environment in a fantastic location on Blasieholmen.’ 

The competition jury will announce the winner in April.
