Jordal Amfi nominated for International Prestigious Award

Recently, the secretariat of the Prix Versailles announced the selected candidates competing for the worldwide architecture prize. Jordal Amfi is among the six projects chosen in the category “Architecture for Sports.”


The recently completed sports project has already garnered significant attention, both nationally and internationally. In the final round, Jordal Amfi competes against grandiose arenas in the USA, France, Qatar, and Georgia. The winner of the same category last year was the Spanish Anoeta Stadium in San Sebastián.

“Together with Kultur- og Idrettsbygg, we have had high ambitions for the project and worked hard to achieve them. This is a confirmation that we have succeeded and inspires our continued work for a sustainable future. It’s especially gratifying when Hille Melbye has invested in a young and hungry team of architects,” says architect Robin Rakke.

Architects Fredrikke Thuestad and Magnus Sandberg Johansen are also delighted with the attention the new ice hockey arena in Oslo has received.

“It’s incredibly cool that what we’re doing here in little Norway is being highlighted internationally,” they point out.

The winner of the prize will be announced at The World Awards Ceremony at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris in December.
