Architecture: Domkyrkoforum by Carmen Izquierdo: “.. a contemporary building that adds a new layer to the many historic layers that characterize the urban environment..The shape of the building creates new adjacent public spaces: The entrance plaza..and a triangular square..In addition to the welcoming exterior spaces an internal atrium is created, as well as an interior courtyard, shaped by the existing and the new building..The facade of the building is madeof a brass alloy, a natural material that ages with a rich and living texture, allowing the building to age into its surroundings; at the inauguration it shimmers like gold, but in a couple of years it will have oxidized into a deep and matte bronze color..”  Distinctive, contemporary form, social sensibility..
