Congratulations to the winners! Han Huynh, Sterrin O'Shea, Kunal Ghevaria, Christopher Peppel and Gary Stephan all won tickets to Bjarke Ingels' talk.
The lecture will be the first in a series organised by the museum's Daniel Brodsky associate curator of architecture and design Beatrice Galilee, called In Our Time.
"The idea behind In Our Time is to focus on contemporary work – ideas, projects and people that will be remembered in the future as being a key part of our time," said Galilee.
"There has always been architecture at the Met, but these talks mark a new beginning for contemporary architecture and design programming."
Ingels, founder of Danish firm BIG, has recently been awarded a string of major projects in America – including the job of designing Google's new headquarters in California with London-based Thomas Heatherwick.
Dezeen has paired up with The Metropolitan Museum of Art as media sponsor for In Our Time – which will also include talks by Japanese architect Kazuyo Sejima and Chile-based duo Pezo von Ellrichshausen among others.
We are offering five readers the chance to win a ticket to this evening's talk, which is otherwise invite-only and has just 100 spaces. The event will start at 6pm EST, 1 May 2015.
Winners must provide their own travel and accommodation.
