The Nobel Center on Blasieholmen will inject a vigorous new institution that and adds considerably to the ambience of the peninsula.
The building will take its place in the city as an integral part of the urban context in which it is situated. The volume of the building will fit in with its surroundings while its skewed siting in the pattern of the city blocks will enable it to be perceived, like Nationalmuseum, as an autonomous institution. The project will transform Blasieholmen into a new whole with the two institutions sited on either side of the expanded urban park.
The Nobel Center is conceived as a clearly defined building where the vibrant, light, brick structure rises from a transparent podium. The careful composition of the facades and the varied treatments its materials aim to fuse a contemporary vitality of activities and usage with intense but realistic craftsmanship.
