Russia launches Atomic Energy Pavilion design contest

  • Comment

Russia’s state atomic energy company ROSATOM has launched an international design competition for a new Atomic Energy Pavilion in Moscow

Planned to start on site this summer, the 15,000m² structure will feature exhibitions on the history of Russia’snuclear industry.

The building will occupy a prominent 6,900m² plot at the All Russia Exhibition Centre – also known as the VDNKh – on the outskirts of Moscow.

According to the competition brief: ‘The pavilion shall not just become an up-to-date exhibition area demonstrating innovations and achievements of the modern nuclear industry, not just a depository of artifacts and documents, but also a communication forum where ROSATOM could have a continuous dialogue with its audiences.’

The brief continued: ‘We would like to make the pavilion equally interesting to people of different ages and occupations, so that it strikes one’s imagination not only with the informativity of exhibitions, understanding of technologies, but also becomes a trendy forum for sharing opinions and involves people in discussions on the scientific and technical issues.’

Six shortlisted teams will receive around £12,000 each to participate in the contest’s second stage.

The competition jury includes ROSATOM chief executive Sergei V. Kirienko and the director of the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art Anton Y. Belov.

Applications are accepted in Russian and English. International teams are advised to partner with a Russian firm to compete for the project.

The deadline for applications is 20 February.
