In the Fall of 2016, Point32 was invited to participate in a peer review of the Nobel Center, a proposed new building for the Nobel Foundation. Through a partnership with the City of Stockholm, the Nobel Center will be strategically located in a highly-visible and accessible location on the Blasieholmen Peninsula in the center of Stockholm.
The building will be designed by David Chipperfield Architects, selected in 2014 through an international juried competition. The future building will house the many activities of the Nobel Foundation, including the Nobel Museum which currently receives more than 250,000 annual visitors. As a public building, the design for the iconic structure is both inviting and transparent, offering a place to meet, learn and explore the issues of our time. A principal goal of the design team is to consider how the building can become a visible leader in environmental performance, and a platform for communicating new approaches to advanced sustainability across the globe.
