Zaha Hadid has won the competition to provide Rome with this £66 million contemporary Arts Centre, near the Foro Italico, funded by the Italian government. The 26,000m2 sinuous flow of buildings will house an art museum, an architecture museum and infrastructure for multimedia cultural events. It was commended for its rigour, imagination, use of direct light, and for its title: 'A scene for thought, with art as a player on a scene.' Steven Holl was second and Rem Koolhaas third. Caruso St John was shortlisted. Ricky Burdett and Jacques Herzog were among the judges.
