Two Swedish architecture magazines, RUM and Arkitektur have published interviews about the Nobel Center in Stockholm, which recently gained detailed planning approval.

In the latest issue of Arkitektur, David speaks with Julia Svensson about the increasing role of private finance in public building and how the architect can attempt to bridge the gap between commercial and public gain.

The February issue of RUM, which can now be read online, includes an interview with Mark Isitt about the role of criticism in shaping architecture, the civic nature of the Nobel Center and the consequences for the programme of altering the building’s size. The interview is accompanied by case studies of selected projects, including the Neues Museum, the Hepworth Wakefield and the private house in Corrubedo.
