Trend Hunter has featured numerous designs by the talented Zaha Hadid. Here we present you with her latest design that won a competition to design the Guggenheim Hermitage Museum in Vilnius, Lithuania.

According to Zaha Hadid Architects, "The new centre for international art will house pieces from collections of both the New York based Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and the St. Petersburg based State Hermitage Museum."

Hadid said in a statement, “I am delighted to be working in Vilnius on the Guggenheim Hermitage Museum. The city will be the European Capital of Culture in 2009 and has a long history of art patronage. With such an interest in the arts, Vilnius will continue to develop as a cultural centre where the connection between culture and public life is critical. This museum will be a place where you can experiment with the idea of galleries, spatial complexity and movement.”
