Global contest launched for new entrance to famous Moscow hotel

  • Comment

The Hotel Ukraina in Moscow has begun a two stage international contest to design a new entrance to the heritage site skyscraper

Built in 1957 with over 1,000 rooms and renovated in 2010, design teams are now called on to propose a response sensitive to the Moscow context while acting as the hotel’s new facade and ‘business card’.

Five teams will progress from stage one with a further five teams invited by the client to submit stage two plans by 25 February.

Each of the five teams to reach stage two will receive £6,200; with the winning three winning teams then invited to negotiations with the client.

International teams are ‘expected’ to collaborate with a Russian consultant to ensure local regulations are met in the contest’s later stages.

The Hotel was recently found to be among the ‘vainest skyscrapers’ in the word with 42% of the building’s height identified as ‘useless space’ by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

Entries are welcome in English or Russian with submissions for stage one due 15 November through the contest page.
