A competition has been launched to design a new Bauhaus museum in Weimar, Germany
Founded in the city in 1919, the modernist architecture and design movement is currently documented in a temporary museum in Weimar which is now set to be replaced thanks to new funding.
The first stage of the two-stage competition focuses on the concept and the location of the building within the competition site. A possible future museum extension and kindergarten should also be considered in stage one submissions, along with landscaping and urban planning proposals.
The second stage will focus on the scheme’s interiors and the wider proposals in greater detail. The site’s future urban layout must also be considered in each submission. A total prize fund of €169,000.00 will be split between the winners, with a design contract awarded to the first place team.

Stage 1 Jury convenes 29 November
