What to emphasize in your submitted work:
A well-advised vision of how af Klint’s legacy can be interpreted as a physical building, taking into consideration the nature of art museums in general, how her art can be experienced, and how the secondary space functions and contributes to the proposal as a whole.
An architectural design that reinforces any underlying concept behind the art museum, while at the same time relating to the site in order to work with its opportunities and constraints.
A clear, but also visually compelling explanation of concept and design. Any text should be well-written and as succinct as possible.
It is not only about having an idea; it’s just as much about how you package and sell it. The presentation style should support the proposal, and ideas should be well motivated.
