The School is getting a new building

A new building will replace the existing brick buildings in the School's block on Vasagatan 1. The new building is planned to be completed in 2024.

With the new building, the School will get an international cutting-edge learning environment on the international forefront, where research and education can be developed to meet the needs of society, and where faculty, staff and students will flourish and enjoy working, studying and spending time. The new building also makes it possible to gather all departments at one address. There will be an entrance to the Västlänken Station Haga integrated in the building, which makes the School and the University an even clearer part of the city.

Architect competition in 2014

The property owners, Akademiska Hus, called for an architect competition in June 2014. The first step attracted 73 contributions from all over Europe. Of these 73, six architect teams were chosen to move on to step two.

In March 2015 “Annex” by Johannes Norlander Arkitektur + Arup was announced as the winner.

Construction work 2020 to 2024

The demolition of the brick buildning begins in January 2020 and the School is expected to be able to move in in the summer of 2024. Here you can read about the time line and planned construction work.
