Kraków architects take top prizes in Gdynia

Two Kraków firms have won acclaim in the bid to build Poland’s only museum dedicated to emigration, after judges in Gdynia chose one to create the permanent exhibition and awarded the other a cash prize.

AE Fusion Studio collected an 80,000zł award for their concept for the exhibition. The studio has also been invited to discuss in more detail how the exhibition will look. A second Kraków firm, Fabryka Dekoracji, won 40,000zł for their contribution.

Marek Stępa, deputy mayor of Gdynia, said the winners had been chosen for their ‘artistic language and vivid imagination’.

The Emigration Museum will be built at Dworzec Morski, and the permanent exhibition will cover some 3,500 square metres.
