Zaha Hadid ArchitectsRiverside Museum in Glasgow, Scotland, has won the prestigious European Museum of the Year Award (EMYA) for it’s ability to “demonstrate brilliantly how a specialist transport collection can renew its relevance through active engagement with the wider social and universal issues.”

Out of 40 museums from across 21 European countries, the jury agreed unanimously that ZHA’s Riverside Museum fulfilled the EMYA criteria of ‘public quality’ at the highest level. 

Zaha Hadid responded to the award by stating: “The Riverside Museum is a celebration of the passion and skills of everyone involved. The exhibits and building come together at this historic location on the River Clyde to enthuse and inspire all visitors. The design continues Glasgow’s rich engineering traditions and explores the cultural foundations that have defined the city.”

Since its opening, over two million people have visited the new Riverside Museum which showcased Glasgow’s transport, shipbuilding and engineering heritage.
