On 30 January Their Royal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, visited ArkDes, Sweden’s national centre for architecture and design, in Stockholm. Their visit took place during the royal state visit to Sweden and focused on the cooperation between the United Kingdom and Sweden in the areas of architecture and design.
During their tour through ArkDes, Christoph Felger, partner and design director of DCA Berlin, presented to the royal couple the office’s proposal for the future Nobel Centre and explained the design and concept behind the building.
In 2014, DCA Berlin won the competition for the design of the Nobel Center, Nobelhuset, which will give the Nobel Prize a home for the first time in its history. The new building will be situated as a ‘solitaire’ in a prominent water-edge position on Blasieholmen next to the Swedish National Museum in the centre of Stockholm.
