OMA reveals Moscow art gallery vision

  • Comment

OMA’s Rem Koolhaas has unveiled plans for a 5,400m² art gallery at Gorky Park in Moscow

The project for Moscow-based arts organisation Garage Center for Contemporary Culture will overhaul a derelict 1960s concrete structure.

Sat within a 120 ha amusement park named after Russian novelist Maxim Gorky, the scheme includes exhibition galleries, a creative centre for children, offices, a book shop and an auditorium.

Designed by Koolhaas, the project wraps the existing structure in a polycarbonate facade creating a translucent-looking building.

Discussing the proposal, he proclaimed: ‘We can intervene in the holocaust of the buildings from the 60s and 70s.

‘There needs to be a cultural shift towards addressing these buildings.’

The project is planned to complete in 2013.
