The winning architecture proposal for the new Science Center in Lund will be made official!

ABOUT THE SCIENCE CENTER PROJECT
At Science Village in northeastern Lund, two world-leading laboratories within material science and life science research are currently being established (ESS and MAX IV). New instruments and methods are being developed to faster and better meet the needs for, e.g., sustainable materials, climate neutral energy solutions, and better targeted theraputical drugs. In a world with escalating global challenges, the scientific community needs to intensify its contribution to solution oriented progress.
Inside Science Village, a large new Science Center is being planned, to become a meeting place and knowledge center that will inspire future research, creative solutions and meetings between experts and researchers. Schoolchildren, young adults and families with children are the primary target audience but there will be something interesting and challenging for everyone. Theme based science galleries will for example focus on the urban environments of the future, opportunities and risks of AI, and highlight the latest developments within genetics. The center will be inaugurated in 2024.
During 2019, an architecture competition was carried out to render the physical form and expression of the building. Out of 41 interested agencies, four were given the opportunity to create a proposal for the building. Now the jury has delivered its verdict and motivation, and the winning proposal will be uncovered at 16:00 on July 3rd in the Architecture Garden of Sweden’s Architects (Strandgatan 16A, Visby) during the Almedalen political summit week. Please join us when the first images of a new iconic building in Lund are going to be displayed.
Participants include the winning architecture agency, Fredrik Ljunghill (Municipal Board Member i Lund, in charge of construction matters), Peter Andersson (Project Manager at Science Center and President of the Jury, Science Village Scandinavia AB), and others.
