Project of a new Hermitage-Moscow museum branch was presented at the V International Cultural Forum in Saint Petersburg

05 December 2016

At the V Saint Petersburg International Cultural Forum which took place in the General Headquarters of the Hermitage and gathered foreign and Russian representatives of business, public authorities and representatives of the culture sector, a session on the topic “Creative Environment and Urban Science” was held. In the course of this session representatives of the Moscow Committee for Urban Development and Architecture, LSR Group, Hermitage in Saint Petersburg and Asymptote architectural bureau presented a project of a new Hermitage-Moscow museum of modern art, implemented by LSR Group within the scope of the large-scale project of ZILART residential complex in Moscow.

Ivan Romanov, Managing Director of LSR Group in Moscow, noted that any worldwide large-scale project of successful redevelopment, such as London Docklands, Fjord City, Confluence Lyon, includes at least one cultural centerpiece. “It provided the impetus for arrangement of a similar center within the scope of the large-scale project of ZILART residential complex which would become a new significant district of our capital. At the same time our wish to create a museum in Moscow coincided with the need of the Hermitage museum for opening of its branch in the capital. Together we came up with the idea of a museum center demonstrating pieces of modern art of XX-XXI centuries consistent with the general concept of art environment in this district”, commented Ivan Romanov in the course of the project presentation.

The five-storied building of the museum will contain a study center, coffee-room, research premises, traditional galleries, a whole separate floor for modern art works, test wing, as well as a wing for performance art and sculpture garden on the roof.

According to the architect Hani Rashid, who is also the author of the project and the head of Asymptote bureau, the concept was developed in consideration of a museum as a modern center with various functions and not as a classical temple of art. He noted that this museum would be able to accommodate sculptures with the height of up to 18 meters as well as to transform the space for installations of any types. The study center, research premises and cinema were arranged with the active cooperation of LSR Group which believes in culture and the future it creates.

The General Director of the Hermitage Mikhail Piotrovsky explained that masterpieces of the modern art and the classic art will be demonstrated together in the Moscow branch of the Hermitage. The name of the Head of the new museum is still unknown, but the list of candidates is quite long.

“Remediation of the territory of the former automotive factory Zil is a project of great importance for this city, as its scope, significance and impact exceeds the one of many large projects in the capital. A huge residential complex, unique for Moscow, will be built, and we have great expectations of this project”, said Sergey Kuznetsov, Chief Architect of Moscow. He also added that creation of new cultural centers in the city is an integral part of its development and formation of comfortable environment.

Moscow branch of the Hermitage Museum of Modern Art is planned to be opened by 2020. It will become a new cultural centerpiece of the district and will be located at Vesnin Brothers Ave. in the territory of ZILART residential complex within the scope of which about one million square meters of living and commercial space will be built. The territory of 65 ha will be allocated for apartment blocks with unique architecture developed by 30 foreign and Russian architect bureaus, as well as for department stores, shopping centers, theaters, a modern park with the area of 20 ha and other facilities.
