TOTEMENT | PAPER‘s competition proposal to design an international multipurpose cultural and leisure exhibition complex, close to Moscow’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.
Australian practice Lockhart Krause Architect has entered its proposal “Community and Earth” into an international design competition for a contemporary art gallery and museum of historical artifacts in the world heritage city of Yaroslavl, Russia. Their scheme aims to “provide a vibrant place for the community” and “explores the idea of earth and history by cutting into the ground.”
