The Berlin office of David Chipperfield Architects has won the competition to design the Nobel Center, the new home of the Nobel Prize in Stockholm. The proposal, developed by Chipperfield and his colleague Christoph Felger, presents a slender building clad in brass and glass with a transparent ground floor. It will overlook the water from Blasieholmen peninsula.



“The jury finds the lightness and openness of the building very appealing and consistent with the Nobel Foundation’s explicit ambition to create an open and welcoming center for the general public,”  Lars Heikensten, chairman of the competition jury and executive director of the Nobel Foundation, said in a statement.



In addition to activities surrounding the Nobel Prize, the center will feature public spaces for exhibitions, events, meetings, and school programming.



Chipperfield and Felger were selected over two other finalist architects, Johan Celsing and Gert Wingardh, both of Sweden.
