Museum depository

Repository of several state museums in Kommunarka

1. Public buildings



A primary objective of this project, which established a particular approach to form, was to elegantly place the depository within the vast and underdeveloped area of Kommunarka, a recently built neighborhood in southern Moscow. The single space was split into several parts to be distributed throughout the site in the form of a pictorial composition. Where a towering monolithic edifice might have loomed over the landscape, a cozy, wind-sheltered square emerges instead.

The snow-white architecture is contrasted by a rich palette of specially selected plants with shades of blue, red and eggplant.
