Competition finalists: Imperial War Museum North Exterior Design

The Imperial War Museum North in Manchester, England, was designed by Daniel Libeskind and completed in 2001. The museum was mainly sorrounded by a plain exterior, occupied by a parking lot. The canal-side building is planning a new design landscape and collected proposals from several firms in a competition. The entries have come to five finalists, from which the final design should be chosen this March.

The finalists are:

White arkitekter ab (Sweden)
Topotek 1 (Germany)
Field Operationes (US)
