Zaha faces two big-hitters and little-known Brit in San Francisco comp

Zaha Hadid has been shortlisted alongside Steven Holl and Diller Scofidio & Renfro to design the new $35 million (£17.5 million) Museum of Performance & Design, San Francisco, California.

The ‘superstar’ trio is joined by little-known London-born architect Mark Dziewulski, who has worked with American-Russian ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov on his submission.

Dziewulski, who has offices in Notting Hill and San Francisco, was the only one of the finalists to draw up plans for the new building (pictured).

Formerly the San Francisco Performing Arts Library & Museum, the museum wants to build a new facility at the corner of Folsom and Third Street.

A winner is expected to be announced in September.
