Mumbai City Museum Design Competition
The Mumbai City Museum has launched a two-stage competition to find a team to design its new north wing.

We will be looking for multi-disciplinary creative teams with expertise in contemporary design and landscaping: the museum stands in one of the few green spaces in south Mumbai. The teams should be structured under a lead consultant identified within the submission. Collaborations with local practices are encouraged.
This two stage competition has a fast-track timetable with a launch in December, the shortlist announced late January and the winner selected in early April 2014. Site preparation is anticipated to begin in October 2014 at the end of the monsoon.
