Hadid wins Guggenheim job

Leading architect Zaha Hadid this week won a design competition for a new museum for New York's Guggenheim Foundation in Lithuanian capital Vilnius.

Hadid worked with structural engineer Hanif Kara to defeat proposals from Studio Daniel Libeskind and Studio Fuksas for the building that will house art from the Guggenheim's collection as well as the St Petersburg-based State Hermitage Museum.

"This museum will be a place where you can experiment with the idea of galleries, spatial complexity and movement," said Hadid.
