The former Armory at 22 Rakowicka Street has already hosted photographs on its walls, including on the occasion of the 15th edition of Photomonth in Krakow in 2017. Work on the renovation and reconstruction of the building is underway, so the time has also come to design the museum's interior.
The goal of the competition is to obtain the best concept for the arrangement of the exhibition space in terms of art, plasticity and content. The competition work is to be characterized by internal coherence and integrity in relation to the building's capabilities while preserving its character, as well as its purpose.
The winner of the competition will receive an invitation to negotiate on a negotiated contract basis.
Competition projects can be submitted until May 29 this year at 12:00 pm to the address:
pl. Jana Nowaka Jeziorańskiego 3, 31-154 Kraków or email@example.com
The official announcement of the results will take place on July 10 this year.
