UNK Project Architects‘ entry for the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation’s National Centre for Contemporary Arts () competition centres around the interplay between art and architecture: “It’s what touches our soul and motivates us to pursue radical new ideas.” Reaching the second stage of the international competition, which has been won by Heneghan Peng Architects, UNK Project Architect’s proposal offers an intriguing, “almost airtight” space veiled by a monolithic façade facing landscaped urban space in the centre of Russia’s capital.
