Zaha is victorious in Vilnius with Guggenheim designs

Zaha Hadid has beaten fellow global stars Daniel Libeskind and Massimiliano Fuksas to win the competition to design the new Solomon R Guggenheim museum in Vilnius, Lithuania
The Iraqi-born Pritzker prize winner was chosen to mastermind the project after a 'lengthy' deliberation which went on throughout yesterday and late into last night (8 April).

Hadid has worked with the Guggenheim Foundation before, having come up with proposals for a museum in Taichung, Taiwan.

This latest architectural competition is part of a feasibility study – backed by the Solomon R Guggenheim Foundation in collaboration with the State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, Russia – to look at the 'architectural, economic, and cultural perspective of establishing a new museum in Vilnius'.

The Baltic city will become the European Capital of Culture next year.
