Our proposal for the New Centre of Contemporary Art conceives of the building as both a back drop for the park and urban scale mirror that reflects and therefore extends the scale of the park, at the same time concealing the back of the new Aviapark Trade and Entertainment Centre.
The form and organisation of the building are inspired by the mathematic model of the Klein Bottle where the outer and inner surfaces are seamlessly interconnected – exterior becomes interior and vice versa. The effect of this shape is to bring the experience of the park seamlessly inside the building.
“The funnel shaped form of the façade will draw visitors into the building. As visitors move inside, the façade becomes a tunnel leading to the main public space. This tunnel ramps up and turns back towards the park, offering a spectacular panoramic view of the park itself.”
With its iconic presence and unique character the future NCCA building will become the corner stone developement of the Khodynskoye Pole Cultural District and will provide a modern flexible facility at the forefront of museum design, attracting visitors from all around the world.
