International architecture competition for the Citroën Cultural Centre: SAU-MSI receives 92 proposals

In connection with the architecture competition for the Citroën Cultural Centre, the Urban Development Corporation (SAU-MSI) has received 92 high-quality proposals in response to the call for project designers that it launched in late April for the conversion of the Citroën Yser garage next to the Canal in the centre of Brussels (see attached list).

A selection committee will now examine these 92 proposals and use the defined criteria to shortlist seven teams for the second phase of the competition.

These teams will have until the end of the year to submit a project outline for the future cultural centre. On this basis, an international panel chaired by Roger Diener will appoint the future project designer in spring 2018.

A cultural centre of international standing

The SAU-MSI has purchased the iconic Citroën Yser building in order to develop a cultural centre of international standing there, thus fulfilling an ambition of the Brussels-Capital Region. Once converted, it will be home to:
• a museum of modern and contemporary art (15,000 m2);
• an architecture centre (10,000 m2);
• public spaces, open to all, to be used for cultural, educational and recreational functions (10,000 m2).

The budget for the execution of the work is 125,000,000 euros plus VAT.
