The selected architects (Peter Zumthor, Steven Holl, Roisin Heneghan (Heneghan Peng Architects), Bjarne Mastenbroek (SeARCH), Bjarke Ingels (BIG), Johua Prince-Ramus (REX), Patrik Schumacher (Zaha Hadid architects), Kjetil Thorsen & Craig Dykers (Snohetta), Harry Gugger (Harry Gugger Studio)) are working at an international level within their field and display a high level of intelligence and sensibility within their designs.
