COBE wins Nykredit Foundation's Architecture Prize

The results of Scandinavia’s largest architecture prize, Nykredit’s Architecture Prize of DKK 500,000, have been announced. The winner of the top award is Copenhagen-based COBE, led by Dan Stubbergaard, a former Nykredit Motivation Prize winner. COBE were recognised for their varied array of services, from minor construction projects to urban space design, strategic planning to complex research schemes. Architects of the Norreport Train Station, COBE are a rapidly burgeoning practice with high promise and great design skill.

Also announced by the Nykredit Foundation was the Motivation Prize winner who will collect DKK 100,000 at the official ceremony on 29 May. This year’s winner is Powerhouse Company, a global-Danish firm that prides itself on attention to detail and boasts an ‘impressive research portfolio’. A special merit of DKK 50,000 was awarded to architect Kent Martinussen, who the Foundation recognises has ‘been of vital importance to the development of Nordic architectural traditions over the last decade. He has moreover given young architects an opportunity for exposure on the national and international stage’.
