Little Mehrin

Permanent exhibition

The winning design of the museum building

International competition for the next building of the Moravian Jewish Museum Mehrin
four world leading studios: the Bjarke Ingels Group (DK), MVRDV (NL), Cino Zucchi
Architetti (IT) and Kengo Kuma & Associates (JP).
The nine-member jury, headed by architect Josef Pleskot, finally unanimously awarded the
the victory to the Japanese architect, who, according to her, offered the "greatest content and
formal openness', thus most accurately meeting the expectations of the contracting authority.
Our permanent exhibition offers several large-scale visualisations of the design as well as a 3D model.
There is also a very interesting interview with architect Kengo Kuma, who gave us a pre
the opening of the exhibition of competition designs at the Architecture Gallery in Brno and where he talks about why
chose this solution for Brno, but also more generally about the functions that the museum should fulfil
in the 21st century. The interview is conducted in English with Czech subtitles.
