Hitrovka Museum
of Contemporary Art

 

The project is situated at the only public square in Hitrovka, a 17th centuryresidential suburb in central Moscow on which the city administrationgranted permission for the constructionof a 25 story office block.However, after community actionin terms of a series of protests, theproject was withdrawn. Unfortunatelywork was simply abandoned and thesite is still closed to the public.

My project proposes a mixed culturalcentre that frees the site by buryingitself below the square. The necessaryprotrusions are then shaped to allowfor public use and free circulationalong existing routes that surroundthe site.
