Hadid beats Kohn Pedersen Fox in competition for Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum

Zaha Hadid Architects has been named winner of the design competition for a new museum at Michigan State University.

The practice beat off competition from four US-based finalists, including Kohn Pedersen Fox Architects, to design the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum.

The 41,000ft2 building, which will have three levels, will be made from steel and concrete with an aluminium and glass exterior. Plans also include an outdoor sculpture garden.

The competition began last June when the university received a gift of $26m (£13m) to help fund a modern and contemporary art centre.

Adams Kara Taylor will be the engineer on the scheme.
