The Afghan Ministry of Information and Culture, representing the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, and with the support of the Government of the United States of America and the U.S. Embassy in Kabul; S.E.E. [office for architecture and design] announces and promotes an International Architectural Ideas Competition. We invite architects, engineers, planners, designers and artists around the world to submit design proposals for the new National Museum of Afghanistan.

The competition is a one-stage ideas competition to generate design proposals for an architectural master plan and detailed building design for the site of the National Museum of Afghanistan. While it is expected that in the future a new museum will be designed and built according to international standards, this ideas competition shall help to visualize what a modern museum in the 21st century in context of today’s Afghanistan will look like. A prestigious Jury will review the entries and prizes will be awarded.
This is clearly a one time opportunity - not only from an artistic architectural perspective - but goes far beyond any other ideas competition. It will stand as strong symbol for a peaceful re-construction of Afghanistan, for its people to unite, and offers everybody to learn about and enjoy the remarkable.
