Zaha beaten in Bauhaus Museum contest

Zaha Hadid Architects has missed out on a winning place in an open competition for a New Bauhaus Museum in Weimer, Germany

The double-Stirling Prize Winner was the only UK architect shortlisted in the high-profile international contest which received 536 entries in total.

No outright winner was chosen for the competition. However second place prizes worth €40,000 were awarded to Landau-based Johann Bierkandt and Architekten HKR of Cologne.

Third place prizes of €30,000 went to Heike Hanada and Benedict Tonon of Berlin, and Bube with Daniela Bergmann from Rotterdam.

The four prize winners will now take part in a ‘VOF procedure’ prior to the award of a design contract for the 3,716 m² project.

The museum is planned to open in 2015.
