The Omuli Museum of the Horse competition is tasking architecture enthusiasts with redesigning and reimagining a historical school building within the UNESCO-recognised North Latvia Biosphere Reserve. The Omuli Primary School, originally built in 1936, is planned to become a museum to educate visitors about the nature and history of local horse breeds. The structure will also function as a guest house and artist-in-residence living and workspace.
The Omuli School recently made history as the first-ever blockchain real estate transaction in Northern Europe, and as the new owner, entrepreneur Eva Cildermane is dedicated to returning the school and the entire Omuli village to its former splendor.
The Omuli Museum of the Horse competition is open until APRIL 23, 2021 with a 10,000€ prize fund and winning entries to be put forward for construction. Visit omulimuseum.beebreeders.com for more information.
