Zaha Hadid Wins Design Comp For Guggenheim Hermitage Museum

When I saw first projects from Zaha Hadid some years ago, I was not sure what to think about it… However, the way she shapes materials and embeds buildings into the environment is really impressing. Now Hadid Architects won the another competition; for the Guggenheim Hermitage Museum in Vilnius.

Zaha Hadid’s silvery building resembling a sub-surface ferry or a space ship is the winning entry in the competition for the design of the Guggenheim Hermitage Museum in the ancient city of Vilnius, capital and the largest city of the Republic of Lithuania.
