David Chipperfield wins contest for new Nobel Centre

Comment

Please help us save the maritime heritage on Blasieholmen ! The Nobel Congress Center will, if built, demolish a maritime heritage consisting of a customs house from 1876 and two unique wooden warehouses from 1910. The Customs House has great historical value as a representative of late-19th-century government and administrative buildings in general and of Stockholm’s customs services, in particular. It is a link in the chain of customs houses in Stockholm from different periods and was designed by renowned architect Axel Fredrik Nyström, who was also responsible for the old National Archives building. The warehouses from 1910, together with the ground cover of large paving stones, reflect efforts made in the early 20th century to improve customs’ work environment and to create better and more modern storage facilities at Stockholm’s harbours. Today, the warehouses are unique in Stockholm, since there are no longer any similar warehouses remaining at Stockholm’s harbours. facebook.com/bevarablasieholmen
