In Bonn, an ongoing competition for the new Festpielhaus (German word for “festival hall”). Located along the Rhine River, the Festpielhaus wil be dedicated to Beethoven, who was born in Bonn in 1770 . The shortlist includes only three proposals, from: David Chipperfield Architects, Kadawittfeldararchitektur and Valentiny hyp architects.
The jury arrived to the final shortlist after declining proposals coming from many internationally-based firms such as Zaha Hadid Architects, Snøhetta, UNStudio, GMP Architekten, Arata Isozaki, JAHN and Architekturbüro Karl-heinz Schommer. The three finalist have to take their schemes into a further detail by the end of Deceber and the winner will be declared in 2015, following cost estimation.
