Innsbruck – On Tuesday and Wednesday of last week, the first jury meeting on the renovation project of the Innsbruck Ferdinandeum took place in the Haus der Musik. 20 European architecture firms made it into the second phase of the competition. Selected projects will now be sent to a revision phase until June 2021. At the next jury meeting, a winning project will be chosen, which will then be presented to the public.

From the Tyrolean state museums it is said that the project schedule can be adhered to and that the start of construction in 2022 will continue to be targeted with “greater planning security”. They also want to transparently monitor the progress of the project on the in-house blog.

The completion of the renovation work was originally planned for 2023. Then it will be the 200th anniversary of the opening of the Ferdinandeum. Already at the end of 2020 it became clear that the venerable house would still present itself as a construction site for its anniversary. A total of 36 million euros have been budgeted for the renovation. The jury includes representatives of the museum association, first and foremost chairwoman Barbara Psenner, as well as museum director Peter Assmann, as well as delegates from the state building management, the chamber of architects, the design advisory board and urban planning. City and country are represented by City Councilor for Culture Uschi Schwarzl (Greens) and Provincial Councilor Beate Palfrader (ÖVP). (colorful)
