PHI announces the two Grand Finalists selected to move forward in the International Architecture Competition for PHI Contemporary

Kuehn Malvezzi + Pelletier de Fontenay and OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen have been selected by the jury to proceed to the final stage of the competition following the public presentations of the five finalist architects on May 2.

The Grand Finalists

Kuehn Malvezzi + Pelletier de Fontenay

Kuehn Malvezzi was founded in 2001 by architects Simona Malvezzi, Wilfried Kuehn and Johannes Kuehn in Berlin. The practice has had a strong focus on cultural venues, exhibitions and public spaces, and an interest in reflexive ways of dealing with specific contexts and sensitive preservation issues.
Established in 2010 by Hubert Pelletier and Yves de Fontenay in Montreal, Pelletier de Fontenay has quickly gained a reputation for design excellence for contemporary public projects that currently include museums, schools, and public libraries projects.

OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen

OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen was founded in 2002 by Kersten Geers and David Van Severen. OFFICE is renowned for its idiosyncratic architecture, in which realisations and theoretical projects stand side by side, engaging in all architectural and urbanist design, creating projects of all scales ranging from furniture to master planning in Belgium as well as internationally.

PHI Contemporary

Opening its doors in 2026, PHI Contemporary (6 900 m2 approximately) will be an institution dedicated to exploring the contemporary through public engagement with art and culture. The project will consolidate the full breadth of PHI’s public cultural offer under one roof. PHI Contemporary will create an open space for the public to engage with its multi-dimensional presentation of art, discourse and creative practices between the PHI Foundation and the PHI Centre.

International Architecture Competition

On August 26, 2021, PHI launched an International Architecture Competition for the design of PHI Contemporary. The call for candidature elicited 65 entries from world-class architectural firms from 14 countries, from which 11 were selected to compete. The competition is now entering its third and final stage. On July 15th, 2022, PHI will announce the competition laureat selected by the jury.
