Seventh Edition 2019-2020
Johan Arrhov (1979) and Henrik Frick (1977) received their master’s in architecture from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in 2007. Together they established Arrhov Frick in 2010 in Stockholm, Sweden. Carlos Nieto (1977) became a partner in 2017.
Their architecture is often reduced to its fundamentals, emphasizing ideological and programmatic simplicity through a focus on function, structural economy and construction logic. Many of the projects support flexible infrastructures that are capable of future iterations and uses, encouraging sustainability and longevity in the building industry.
In 2018 they have been elected “Architect of the Year” by Residence magazine and in the same year a monographic issue was published about their work by 2G International Architectural Magazine. The office has been nominated for European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award 2019.
Arrhov Frick frequently lectures and teaches throughout the world and their work is widely published and exhibited internationally.
