Nobel Center is to be built on Blasieholmen, on a wonderful site along Stockholm’s central waterfront. Through its broad public activities, the Nobel Center will invite people into the Nobel Prize’s unique world of natural sciences, humanities and peace efforts and become a meeting place that inspires curiosity and creativity. The Nobel Prize and the life stories of the Nobel Laureates provide a rich source of inspiration on which the Nobel Center will build its exhibitions, media productions and educational activities. For many years, the City of Stockholm has reserved this site for public activities of international interest. We believe that the Nobel Center will enhance the value of this location and make it more accessible for visitors to Stockholm, as well as its residents. A long-awaited attraction will finally become a reality.
We have an exciting journey ahead of us and welcome everyone to follow our progress!
Over 140 architects were considered by a specially appointed evaluation committee. A final 12 were invited to the architectural competition.
Most of the financing has been secured thanks to a generous donation from the Erling-Persson Family Foundation and the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.
The international competition to design Nobel Center begins with some of the world’s foremost architects in participation.
After the architectural competition is completed, a new detailed developing plan will be based upon the winning entry.
Considering the shipyard that once existed on the competition site, an excavation awaits prior to the start of construction.
The construction work may commence in 2015.
According to the current timeplan, the inauguration of the Nobel Center may take place in December, 2018.
