[STOCKHOLM] The Nobel Foundation unveiled on Wednesday the winning design for a building that will give the world's most prestigious prize a home for the first time in its 100-plus-year history.

The foundation hopes to inaugurate the 25,000 square metre building in 2018, when it is expected to house nearly all its activities, including the Nobel Prize ceremony and the Nobel museum.

"The winner of the architecture competition of the Nobel Centre is David Chipperfield Architects in Berlin," Nobel Foundation executive director Lars Heikensten said at a press conference.
