Danish architecture firm Cobe, led by founder Dan Stubbergaard, has won an international competition for the new Gothenburg University Library in the heart of Gothenburg, Sweden.

The new 16,000-m2 (172,223-sf) library will be in the university area of Näckrosen, near many of the city’s cultural institutions and the Faculties of Humanities and the Fine, Applied and Performing Arts. In addition to providing a new setting for knowledge-sharing and research in the Swedish university city, the building will house the existing libraries for the humanities, arts, music, drama, plus the university archives and digital services.
