Chipperfield's latest designs in Nobel Centre race revealed

  • Comment

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.
