In Fashion Innovation 3 fashion students at Beckmans College of Design and stcomposition students from the Royal College of Musicare 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. In both fashion and music we can see the Nobel Prizes reflected. Students from the Visual Communications programme at Beckmans have followed the process and documented it in film and print media.
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
