View (winning scheme). Image Courtesy of

TOTEMENT | PAPER‘s competition proposal to design an international multipurpose cultural and leisure exhibition complex, close to ’s Kremlin, centers around resolving the aesthetic disconnection, or “visual conflict”, between the image of a modern European city – defined by the Ismailovo hotel complex – and the historic context of the site. Their designs (two variations of each other of which one has won the competition) do not blend into the existing cultural monuments but rather offer a modern antidote to the issues of scale, perception and “grandiose historical stylization” that currently exists.
