The Association of Polish Architects named Warsaw’s Museum of the History of Polish Jews as the best publicly funded building of 2013.

Designed by Finnish architects Rainer Mahlamaki and Ilmari Lahdelma, part of the building was opened to the public in April 2013, although the permanent exhibition will not be accessible until later this year.

“The prize was awarded for outstanding performance by a public building,” the jury wrote in a statement that was published last week on the website of the Association of Polish Architects, or SARP.
