Adjaye Associates in collaboration with the local office AB3D will build the new Latvian Museum of Contemporary Art in Riga. Their proposal carried the day over the other six shortlisted projects by Caruso St John Architects (United Kingdom), Henning Larsen Architects (Denmark), Lahdelma & Mahlamäki Architects (Finland), Neutelings Riedijk Architects (Netherlands), Sauerbruch Hutton (Germany) and wHY (United States). Located in New Hanza City, a new 24,5-hectare district of the Latvian capital, the building will custody a collection of art and visual culture from Latvia and the Baltic Sea region, from the 1960s until today. The design takes inspiration from the traditional wood houses with sloping roofs found in the area. The construction budget for the museum is 30 million euros, and it is slated for completion in 2021.
