First, it is probably the cheapest of the bunch and most likely the one that would be most easily built. If you look at the others you will notice that they are full of undulating curves in the structure, not cheap by any means. This is not to say that the winner is my choice either, but there are obviously guidelines set out by the MOMA or which ever body oversaw the proposals for the competition.

I can also see why such a building was chosen for a modern art museum- it is subdued, conservative and has clean lines and blends into the city well. While many cities today are opting to go the Gehry or Liebeskind route- jutting, jagged and explosive architecture- not that there is anything wrong with them or their buildings, they are now sprouting up everywhere. Thus a more conservative and toned-down approach is probably a better choice- it is not necessarily a copy of anything anywhere and looks like it belongs. That again, is not to say I think it should have won. I do not find it to be the worst though.

What a disaster! How boring, such a terrible shame. All of the other entries are far superior! *tut*

You don' have to, I'm sure they feel okay... and perhaps they feel sorry for people that don't understand the difference between design and architecture, or between a fashion show and a museum..

The director of this future museum already quit because he hates this design and cant understand why they chose the one they did.

its about making a statement and being a symbol. Picking a different design would've showed the world Warsaw is at the cutting edge when it comes to design and construction, it'd be recognizlable symbol along with the Palace of Culture and Science and zloty Taraz. Instead we have this...

The winning design is indeed anemic. The shell is staid and it's budgeted simplicity reminds me of a poor man's casket. Hopefully they'll review the project again and choose a more cutting edge design.

Notice the difference between previously published renders and these models.

I love this design! It's borderline brutalism... with minimalist qualities. I'm sure that once it's finished it will be a great place to visit. The other designs generally look like what a museum shouldn't be: an expanse of space where very little of it is used to display anything. The white bubble one is horrendous. It's just poorly planned floor space.

I don't love it. In fact, there are a good half-dozen better than this one, IMO. It's not that it's a bad design, it's just that in such a highprofile spot, it's not iconic enough. Perhaps changing the colour a bit would help?

IIRC, the spot it was on was empty, save an entrance to the Metro, right?

Wrong, the entrance to the metro is about 400 meters to the south (and another one about 100 m to the north). And the plot is not empty as yet, there's a monstrous temporal department store there.
