Zaha Hadid

Zaha Hadid has won the competition to design a £3 million extension to the Ordrupgaard Art Museum in Copenhagen. The competition, run by the Danish Ministry of Culture and Ordrupgaard Museum, was for the design of an additional 1,150m 2of space. Hadid won the contest with a unanimous jury decision. The extension will provide much-needed space to house the museum's extensive collection of French Impressionist drawings and paintings, as well as its Danish Collection. The scheme will also include space for temporary exhibitions, a foyer, a restaurant and a multipurpose hall. The other shortlisted architects were: Dominique Perrault Architecte, Paris; Fogh & F°lner Arkitektfirma, Copenhagen; Henning Larsens Tegnestue, Copenhagen; Bruun & Clementsen, Copenhagen; MVRDV, Rotterdam; and Architekten von Gerkan, Marg und Partner, Hamburg. The extension is scheduled to open in 2004.
