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
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.
