As the jury were unable to agree on one winner, a ranking system has been put in place. First place was jointly awarded to architects Gonzalez Hinz Zabala, of Barcelona, and Young & Ayata, from New York. Behind them in the ranking is Maurice Berrel, from Zurich in third and in fourth place is Nima Javidi, of Toronto.

Director of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, Claudia Perren commented: "There will not be a mixture of the proposed designs," and that the winning design will be announced before the end of 2015.

On whether the judges will need to intervene if the candidates can not reach a decision:"It is still possible, although we hope this scenario doesn't happen, that the negotiations with the winning candidates end negatively, in which case we will negotiate with the third and fourth place candidates.''

The museum, which is scheduled to open in 2019 in conjunction with Bauhaus' 100 year anniversary, is being built to house the 40 000 objects that the The Bauhaus Dessau Foundation has in storage.
