MuuM's Erciyes Congress and Cultural Center has been shortlisted for the World Architecture Festival Awards in the Culture category for Future Projects. Located in the city of Kayseri, near Turkey's Erciyes Mountain, the Center is part of Kayseri Metropolitan Municipality’s Master Plan, which aims to improve the area for better year round (rather than just seasonal) use.

The design of the building is drawn from the surrounding topography, mimicking the mountain scenery, as well as creating functional roofing that can withstand the area’s harsh winters and heavy snowfall.

When completed, the Center will include an auditorium, a conference hall, three multifunctional meeting halls, a restaurant, social cocktail areas, and technical spaces, with a capacity of over 4,000 people. Social spaces like the entrance, foyer, and restaurant will be open to views of the neighboring Tekir Lake and Erciyes Mountain.
