«In the entire story connected with this project, there are two most interesting points.
First of all, it is the location of the object. The square, which will become a kind of node that unites all the houses around, is conceived to be a silent hidden corner. Any European city contrastingly combines streets with small squares.
The second point is the event potential. There's a lack of new cultural projects while in this place a new museum and exhibition centre will emerge. Now there are very few new cultural projects, but suddenly a new museum, educational and exhibition spaces will open in the center of Moscow. This is a place where people will come to look at beauty, listen to lectures and communicate - city always lacks such places.
As for the project itself we tried to show and realize its true potential which is enormous. The facade of irregular shape should be mentioned individually as it bears and supports an enormous space. The internal structure of the complex is simple and complex at the same time, systematically structured. It is multi-layered relative to the courtyard, entrances and entrances. The courtyard is a well with a garden, multi-level apartments, a new art space in a small cozy square - all this is like the quintessence of urban cultural life.»
