Hadid vies for Vilnius

Zaha Hadid has been pitched into battle against Daniel Libeskind and Massimiliano Fuksas to design the new Solomon R Guggenheim museum in Vilnius, Lithuania.

The three starchitects will show off their designs next Tuesday (8 April) at a special exhibition in the Baltic city, which becomes European Capital of Culture in 2009.

Hadid has had a long history of working with the Guggenheim Foundation, having come up with proposals for a museum in Taichung, Taiwan, and a performing arts centre in Abu Dhabi (pictured).

This latest architectural competition is part of a feasibility study – backed by the Solomon R Guggenheim Foundation in collaboration with the State Hermitage Museum – to look at the ‘architectural, economic, and cultural perspective of establishing a new museum in Vilnius’.
