Väven ("The Weave")
Commissioned jointly by the Municipality of Umeå and Balticgruppen, the cross-boundary collaboration between Swedish architecs White and Norwegian Snöhetta have resulted in an architectural landmark of the highest international standard that is home to a diverse group of public and private organizations, businesses and services that together make up Väven.
A creative hub and a brand new meeting place for boundless culture on the Umeälven river in central Umeå. The Väven cultural centre will be completed during the capital of culture year, when locals and visitors alike can watch as its facilities open up step-by-step. Some of these include a new house of culture, a lively indoor court-yard, new restaurants, cafés and a hotel.
