Presentation winning competition design for the expansion of S.M.A.K.

Nieuw S M A K 2

Kom langs en geef je gedacht!

The S.M.A.K. has long been in need of more space. In a new museum building, the S.M.A.K. wants to be able to permanently display 500 works from its own collection. The current building does not meet international museum standards in terms of climate control and is therefore in need of thorough renovation.

To make this expansion and renewal possible, the museum, together with urban development company sogent, went looking for a design team via the Open Call procedure of the Flemish Government Architect. From five submitted designs, the jury selected a winner who will be announced on Friday 14 June 2024. The team will then further develop their competition proposal into a final design in the coming months. We would love to hear from you now what you think.
