'Garage', founded by Dasha Zhukova in 2008, is a major arts project based in Moscow, dedicated to exploring and developing contemporary culture. At the beginning of this year, Garage moved from its original home in the Bakhmetevsky Bus Garage to Gorky Park in Moscow (central park of leisure and culture).

In July Garage started new summer program to mark its' presence in the Park. A new temporary wooden pavilion was designed by young Russian architects Kitaev, Martynov, Slonimskiy, Spivakov and Staborovskiy to house the summer program exhibitions and shows.

The new pavilion is an architectural homage to the Hexahedron - classical Soviet pavilion by Ivan Zholtovsky which is situated 100 m away from the new structure and is partially ruined now (in 2013 it will be renovated by OMA).

The new structure is a sequence of 6 white cubes carefully placed between the existing trees and bushes in the park in order to fit in to the landscape and preserve all the greenery on the site. The cubes are connected with several semi-outdoor courtyards thus a visitor has to go in and out everytime he enters the next space.

Rectangular geometry of the exhibition cubes is wrapped with soft, double-curved surfaces of the exterior skin - translucent white net. Layers of net blur the shape of the pavilion and create 'moiré' effect. Acting as a diffusion layer, the net transforms the image of the pavilion: the structure looks more opaque or more transparent, depending on the angle.

The material of the buildings' skin represents the impermanence of the pavilion. Usage of 'construction safety net' (which is used for covering the construction sites) shows the ephemeral verge between the construction and demolition of the new pavilion.

putin's russia is just not able to produce any original architectural thinking, copycats in the best case, that's all

Maybe it's a bit trendy, but I like the space inside with all the bottles and the light

I believe somebody low on inspiration has been reading too many books on fashionable Japanese architects here.
