On behalf of the Afghan Ministry of Information and Culture (MoIC), representing the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and supported by the Government of the U.S. and the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, S.E.E. | office for architecture and design is pleased to announce and promote the International Architectural Ideas Competition (IAIC_NMA) for the new National Museum of Afghanistan.

The competition is a one stage ideas competition to generate design proposals, which are due no later than June 6th, for an architectural master plan and detailed building design for the site of the National Museum of Afghanistan. More information on the competition after the break.

While it is expected that in the future a new museum will be designed and built according to international standards, this ideas competition shall help to visualize what a modern museum in the 21st century in context of today’s Afghanistan will look like. It is anticipated that the successful Applicant may be invited to provide full design services, or may be asked to partner with other professional design firms to produce the documents necessary for the planning phase.

The competition is open to architects, engineers, planners, designers and artists to develop and visualize a proposal capable of responding to emerging challenges for a National Museum in Afghanistan. Practicing architects, engineers and other professions participating in the competition must be registered with their National Registration/ Regulatory Authority. Professionals with more limited experience in the delivery of relevant projects may wish to consider collaborating with another practice.

The competition Jury is chaired by His Excellency Minister Dr. Sayed Makhdoom Raheen (Minister of Information and Culture) and composed of international architects, museum planners, archaeologists and related design professionals, including Dinah Casson (architect), Klaus Bode (environmental engineer), Toby Allen (structural engineer), Susanne Annen (architect), Jolyon Leslie (architect), and William Remsen (architect).

The following prizes will be awarded: a first prize of 50,000 US$, a second prize of 30,000 US$ and a third prize of 20,000 US$. In addition, three Honorable Mentions with no cash prize are to be awarded.
