The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas, US, has selected three architecture firms to submit conceptual design proposals for a museum expansion.

Morphosis, Snøhetta and Steven Holl Architects have been chosen from an initial pool of ten international architectural firms.

The project includes the construction of a new building to house post-1900 art, a parking garage and the integration of surrounding MFAH buildings and public spaces.

Plans for the new building include galleries for travelling exhibitions, educational facilities, a library and study / source centre, lecture halls, a theatre and a restaurant.

The new building is proposed for construction on a two-acre site owned by the museum that is currently used as a car park.

The concept proposals are estimated to be submitted in early 2012 and will be reviewed by the long-range planning committee.
