POLAND The Nizio Design International architectural studio founded by Mirosław Nizio has won the competition to design the extension and renovation of the Warsaw Uprising Museum.

The competition was to choose a coherent concept for the expansion and modernisation of the museum and the development of the area around it. The first prize was PLN 66 mln gross and an invitation to negotiate the development of the project documentation by direct agreement.

“This concept incorporated the design objectives envisaged by the terms of the competition to the greatest extent, mainly the objective of improving the functionality of the existing museum by designing a new entrance zone facing onto ul. Towarowa,” was how the jury explained its decision.

The new entrance has been designed to reduce queues outside the building. It will include an entrance pavilion with a green roof, a gentle decline and it will have the character of a garden/park where various outdoor educational events can be held. Its form will open the museum onto the city by featuring a long glass lobby along ul. Towarowa. The second prize (PLN 44,000 sqm gross) went to M.O.C. Architekci of Katowice, while third prize was awarded to the Piaseczno-based studio Tomcat.arch.design of Tomasz Olszewski (PLN 33,000).

Two designs received honourable mentions. One of these was the work of Artgraf Jolanta Miłkowska-Ferenc, Artgraf Marcin Ferenc Pracownia Krajobrazu and Marta Grzybowska-Dryja. The other was for a project drawn up by the Kraków-based Em4 Brataniec studio of Marcin Brataniec.
