Ever since the inception of the Nobel Prize, a building where the Nobel Prize, the Nobel Laureates and their achievements can be presented to the general public has been envisioned. A new Nobel Center will now be built on a site provided by the City of Stockholm.
Presently an architectural competition for the building is in progress. Eleven architectural firms have accepted an invitation to participate in the competition:
3XN, BIG, David Chipperfield Architects, Johan Celsing Arkitektkontor, Lacaton & Vassal Architectes, Lundgaard & Tranberg Arkitekter, Marcel Meili, Markus Peter Architekten, OMA, SANAA, Snøhetta, Wingårdhs Arkitekter
The Nobel Museum exhibits the eleven proposals with six posters each. During its first stage the competition is anonymous. After the jury’s assessment, two to five architectural offices will continue to the second stage of the competition, during which their proposals will be further refined. In April 2014, the winning proposal will be presented.
Between 18 and 24 November, the exhibition will be modified and not available for visiting. The exhibition will reopen on November 26th.

Beckmans College of Design and the Royal College of Music interprets the Nobel Prize 2013
In Fashion Innovation fashion students at Beckmans College of Design are making their interpretations of this year’s Nobel prizes. Their creations will be adaptations of the prizes in physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, peace and economic sciences, and of the discoveries and the people who have been awarded the prize this year. Students from the Visual Communications programme have followed the process and documented it in film and print media. Students from the Royal College of Music will likewise make musical interpretations of the prizes to accompany the fashion creations.
The project explores what unites Nobel laureates, fashion designers and composers – namely creativity. Courage to think on entirely new lines, daring to question established theories, innovative combinations of insights from different fields – these are some of the characteristics of creativity.
The shop offers a selection of products, literature and gifts for all ages. Here is a small selection of our products:
