Children’s Museum in Sofia won by NY-based Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership

A competition for what may be the first museum in Sofia dedicated to children has been won by a team comprising New York-based Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership (LHSA+DP), A+A Architects, Paul Orselli Workshop and a team of local engineers.

The public museum will be located the university precinct of Studentski-grad (Sofia, Bulgaria) in a former college laboratory building. Just out of design development, the 35,000 sq ft project is due to complete in 2015.

“We are branching out to places outside of the United States and, in this case, creating what is arguably the first children’s museum in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet bloc, which we think is important,” says Lee H. Skolnick, FAIA, founding principal of LHSA+DP.

“Children’s museums are a fundamentally American invention, so the MUZEIKO project represents an American export of our expertise.”
