Danish architectural firm wins prestigious award with research powerhouse
One of Scandinavia’s leading architectural firms, C.F. Møller Architects, is the winner of this year’s MIPIM Award in the category of Best Healthcare Development with Biomedicum, a powerhouse research complex for the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, one of the world's leading medical universities.
With a glass-covered green atrium, the outdoor campus area is continued through the building, thereby reinforcing the social qualities of the green campus to the benefit of knowledge-sharing and interdisciplinarity. The building’s openness is created with a transparent and inviting ground floor with access to the atrium as well as a café and public exhibition space. This also opens up the Karolinska Institutet towards the new planned university hospital which will be directly adjacent.
With Biomedicum, the institute gains a single unifying environment for research, with ultra-flexibly equipped laboratories acting as a catalyst for cross-cutting collaboration between the various research and study environments. With C.F. Møller Architects’ attention to innovation, experience and Nordic values, Biomedicum will become a pivotal point in the area – a distinctive icon for the world-class research for which the Karolinska Institutet is known.
The MIPIM Awards honors the most outstanding and accomplished projects completed around the world and showcases the very best of the real estate industry. With Biomedicum, C.F. Møller Architects wins the MIPIM Award for the third time in a row.
