The Forum Prize is a recent institution,
a development of the prize for »Sweden's best interior design«
awarded annually by the magazine Forum from 2000 to 2004. A year
ago the magazine changed direction, moving its focus from Swedish
interior architecture to architecture, interior and design in all
the Nordic countries, and the prize has been adapted accordingly.
The Forum Prize will be awarded for the first time at a ceremony
early next year and is the only architectural prize spanning all
the Nordic production for 2005.
The selection process takes place in two
stages, of which the first is now complete. Each of the five Nordic
countries has been represented by its own selection committee. The
Danish committee has comprised Sólveig Berg Björnsdóttir,
Gudmundur Oddur Magnússon and Guja Dögg Hauksdóttir
(more info below). The task of the national committees has been
to designate the leading items from their respective countries or
by their fellow-countrymen abroad. The committees have been free
to select from among all projects completed between 1 October 2004
and 30 September 2005.
For images of the projects or more information,
