Cobe recieves Nykredit’s Architecture Prize
Skandinavia’s largest architecture prize, Nykredit’s Architecture Prize of DKK 500,000, is this year awarded to Cobe represented by Dan Stubbergaard. Dan Stubbergaard won Nykredit’s Motivation Prize in 2007. At that time, Cobe had not completed any projects but has since then seen an impressive professional development, leading to a number of prize-winning national and international projects. “In its choice the jury emphasized the fact that Cobe spans the full professional spectrum from construction and urban space design to strategic planning and research. Currently, Cobe is most renowned for the design and realization of the new Nørreport Train Station and is currently detailing the development of the Nordhavn harbour area – one of Scandinavia’s largest and most ambitious metropolitan development projects”, says the chairman of the prize jury, Mette Kynne Frandsen, Architect and CEO. The Nykredit Foundation is behind Nykredit’s Architecture Prize. The prize is the largest of its kind in Scandinavia and with the prize money of DKK 500,000, it has joined the league of leading architecture prizes such as the Pritzker Architecture Prize and the Mies van der Rohe Prize.
