30.11.2022Appointment for the new Nobel Center

David Chipperfield Architects Berlin has been re-appointed to design the Nobel Center at its new location at Slussen in central Stockholm. Working with Swedish practice Sweco Architects, who will take on the role of local architect, the ambition is to create an exceptional, highly sustainable building that reflects both the values of the Nobel Prize and the high expectations of Stockholm's residents. The new waterfront location is part of the Slussen masterplan in the Södermalm district, where the Nobel Center is scheduled to open to the public in 2029.

The Nobel Center is intended to be an open house for science, culture and dialogue as well as an attractive destination for Stockholm’s residents, Nobel laureates, tourists, students and teachers. It will represent the ambitions of the prestigious Nobel Prize, based on its 120-year history. Together with Sweco, the practice will support the Nobel Foundation in developing the design for the Center’s extensive programme, which will include exhibitions, education, conferences, hospitality facilities and a library. The new Nobel Center aims to be an inclusive place that provides inspiration for solving the challenges our world faces today and in the future.
