Carmody Groarke, Design Museum Extension in Ghent (Belgium)

 
The British partnership of Kevin Carmody and Andy Groarke – in collaboration with the Belgian firm TRANS Architectuur and RE-ST – has won the bid to build an extension to Design Museum Gent, that will improve circulation and the connection between current galleries besides creating additional exhibition space. Selected out of a pool of entries including proposals by other international teams, such as OFFICE and Assemble, the scheme shows a curvilinear piece, executed with wooden ribs, that will be both a functional and a symbolic crown for the institution’s existing facilities, formed by a 19th-century hotel building and several expansions carried out in the course of the 20th century. The new coronation makes a sculptural presence and its large openings from an auditorium will provide a spectacular lookout over the historical quarter of the Flemish city.
