Gothenburg's new iconic landmark

Gothenburg's new iconic landmark

Henning Larsen Architects have won the international design competition for a new high-rise landmark in Gothenburg, Sweden’s second-largest city.

The project includes an open and inviting ground floor of mixed-use functions and two commercial towers.  The remarkable architectonic expression of the towers will create an iconic new landmark in Gothenburg.

With 40,000 sq m of space, the taller tower is expected to rise up to 30 storeys and will thus form a prominent part of the city’s changing skyline.

The competition’s jury report accentuates, among other things, the proposal’s daylight qualities and organisational flexibility.

Moreover, the jury highlighted the rich design of the building volumes and the facades in particular, which create a changing experience as one approaches the building.

Henning Larsen Architects’ winning design proposal will now form the basis for further planning and development. Construction for the building, though, has not yet been scheduled.
