To increase its exhibition space, the Prado Museum in Madrid has announced a competition for the architectural renovation of the nearby Salón de Reinos and its fitting out for museum use. The Prado celebrates its bicentennial in 2019 and part of the preparations for this involves absorbing the ‘Hall of the Kingdoms,’ a wing left over from what was the Buen Retiro Palace and also once the seat of the Spanish Army Museum. In doing so, the institution will increase its useful floorage by somewhere between 4,300 and 5,800 square meters.
The jury – which includes Luis Fernández-Galiano, María Dolores Jiménez-Blanco, Rafael Moneo, and Fernando de Terán – will select up to eight entries in the first open phase, for which contestants have until 21 April to register. In the second phase, the finalists will draw up their proposals, for which each team will receive a subsidy of 36,300 euros. The eventual winner will be awarded 48,400 euros. The amount allocated for honorariums in payment of project designs and execution rises to 1,756,315 euros.
