Malcolm Reading Consultants (MRC) invites Latvian architects including urban architects, planners and landscape architects to apply to take part in the Latvian Museum of Contemporary Art’s architectural competition by 8 February 2016.
Five architecture firms of international standing will be chosen to take part in the Latvian Museum of Contemporary Art’s architectural competition. These finalists will collaborate with Latvian architects to create a proposal for the architectural form of the new museum. In February 2016, from the applications received, the finalists will choose partners from Latvia with the most compatible knowledge and experience, in order to jointly create conceptual designs for the new museum.
The vision outlined in the museum’s concept envisages that the museum building should become a stellar example of outstanding architecture and one of Riga’s premiere points of interest for visitors to the city. The building must be built using environmentally sustainable solutions that attract international interest and acclaim. In order to achieve these goals, the competition will be organised by Malcolm Reading Consultants (MRC), which this summer successfully organised the challenging Guggenheim Helsinki Museum architectural competition in Finland.
It is planned that the competition will take about six months. At its conclusion, the winner will be chosen, while the other competition participants will receive gratuities.
