After the original Liget Budapest design competition didn't have an ideal outcome, The Museum of Fine Arts Budapest and the Városliget Zrt is still hunting for the winning proposal of Budapest's new National Gallery and Ludwig Museum.
And the stakes are already high for the commission. The seven well-known architecture firms invited to compete are:
- ATELIERS JEAN NOUVEL
- DAVID CHIPPERFIELD ARCHITECTS
- NIETO SOBEJANO ARQUITECTOS S.L.P.
- RENZO PIANO BUILDING WORKSHOP
- SEJIMA AND NISHIZAWA AND ASSOCIATES (SANAA)
Proposals will be for the common building of the New National Gallery and Ludwig Museum. Scroll down for more details.
"In the first stage only a short track record (only cultural function, realised, at least 5.000 sq m), staff description, and demonstration of financial compliance were required.
A maximum of 10 invited offices and the best of the entrants that meet the requirements will be invited to the second stage. All invited firms will be awarded with a €20,000 invitation fee. The second phase of the competition will require drawings scaled at 1:250, a clear energy concept, and infographics.
A total of €325,000 will be awarded to the winners as such:
- 1st prize: €65,000
- 2nd prize: €35,000
- 3rd prize: €25,000
Final results of the competition are scheduled for April 2015.
