Nobel Field
At the Nobel Peace Center, in the new Nobel Field you will find glowing portraits of all the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates emerging from screens among many hundreds of points of light. As you approach the screen of a Laureate the honoree’s display comes alive and audio of his ideas is heard. The Field is composed entirely by digital technologies. Architect David Adjaye said of the room:

What is beautiful is that we’re living in an information age and for me the fabulous thing is to dissolve the hardware and to make the software speak. Because thats what’s precious, and thats what’s delightful about the time we are in.
