The Nobel Prize may be considered the most significant prize for outstanding human achievements in the sciences, literature and peace in the world. The new Nobel Center – ‘Nobelhuset’ – serves not only as a setting where the admirable past of this prestigious award is brought together in one place; but also as a foundation for a new era, in which the achievements and ideals of the Nobel Prize will become an active and lively source of inspiration for generations to come.
The new building gives the Nobel Prize a home for the first time in its history, strengthening Blasieholmen as an even more prominent cultural destination. ‘Nobelhuset’ unites under one roof an auditorium, a museum, conference facilities, educational spaces and offices, as well as a restaurant, a bar, a café and a shop. ‘Nobelsalen’, the auditorium situated on the upper storey, represents the architectural highlight of the building and will serve as the future venue of the Nobel Prize Ceremony for Sciences, Literature and Economic Sciences.
