The new Münchner Stadtmuseum – plans and models for the future

At a plenary session of Munich City Council held on 29 July 2015, Munich architects Auer Weber Assoziierte were awarded the contract for the redevelopment and general refurbishment of the Münchner Stadtmuseum. They are now responsible for all future planning work. Their remit is to develop an extensive complex of buildings in six separate sections stretching between St.-Jakobs-Platz, Sebastiansplatz and Oberanger and Rosental streets.

A Europe-wide tendering process for this project was launched in December 2013. From the bids submitted, a selection panel subsequently drew up a shortlist of five. The shortlisted architecture firms made interim presentations in September 2014, and were then invited to submit more detailed proposals and plans for specific design concepts. These new proposals were then scrutinized by the selection panel. Following lengthy deliberations, the contract was awarded to Munich architecture firm Auer Weber Assoziierte.

The five shortlisted proposals together with the architecture models will be on display in the auditorium (“Saal”) of the Münchner Stadtmuseum during normal opening hours. They are open for public view free of charge until September 13, 2015.
