The Kasper Salin Prize (Swedish: Kasper Salinpriset) is a prize awarded annually by Sveriges Arkitekter to a Swedish building or building project "of high architectural standard". It is considered the most prestigious architectural prize in the country and has been awarded since 1962. The award is distributed to the building itself and consists of a bronze relief, designed by Swedish architect Bengt Lindroos (1918– 2010), which is attached to the building. The prize was funded on the basis of a dormant donation from Kasper Salin (1856–1919) who served as the city architect of Stockholm from 1898 until 1915.[1][2]
