15 Nov 2006
Cagliari Competition Winner
Design: Zaha Hadid Architects
Zaha Hadid Architects is pleased to announce that the Practice has won a prestigious international competition to design the new Nuragic and Contemporary Art Museum in Cagliari, Italy.
Envisioned as a project to be completed in three phases, the structure will cover some12,000 square metres, comprised of Nuragic and Contemporary Art exhibition spaces, a library, a congress hall, offices and retail space.
The aim of the project is to create a node of cultural exchanges that can simultaneously serve as a landmark announcing the arrival to Cagliari from the sea, and answer the five challenges proposed by the brief.
Through the interconnection of the inner circulation with the public paths and the alternation of open spaces and cavities, the building shares its public dimension with the city. Moreover, it geometrically aligns along the axis of the sea, and extends its arms towards the quarter and the stadium of S. Elia, connecting and assimilating itself to the site.
