On April 24th 2024 the Ministry of Spatial Planning, Urbanism and State Property of Montenegro announced that group lead by the Milan/ London-based practice a-fact and composed by LAND, Maffeis Engineering and Charcoalblue has won the International Competition for “conceptual architectural design of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Natural History Museum and Park of Arts & Culture with associated cultural facilities” in Podgorica (Montenegro).

 

The winning proposal “creates an iconic architecture that connects culture and nature by rejoining the Morača river with the city. The new museum district and the park of arts & culture will spark Podgorica’s social life, becoming a vibrant and dynamic public attractor.

 

The buildings promote a new paradigm of sustainability by encouraging the interaction between indoor and outdoor spaces and by exploring the contemporary use of local materials and construction techniques.” according to the architects Andrea Rossi, Giovanni Sanna and Pierluigi Turco, co-founders of a-fact.
