Garage Museum of Contemporary Art has announced a competition for the design concept of the 2020 Garage Screen summer cinema. Just as in 2019, the competition is organized by Strelka KB.
The Garage screen competition offers up-and-coming architects the opportunity to tackle an ambitious task: to design a multifunctional temporary summer cinema pavilion that would be accessible to visitors with disabilities and meet the museum’s standards of environmental responsibility. A temporary pavilion will be installed in Moscow’s Gorky Park from spring to fall 2020.
The previous competition held in the beginning of 2019 gathered over 130 applications from 24 Russian cities. The winning project built by Moscow-based architecture firm Syndicate has became one of the most popular leisure spots in the city.
The upcoming competition expands its geography by inviting architects not only from Russia, but also from Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan to participate.
The competition’s selection committee will include Dasha Zhukova, co-founder of Garage; Anton Belov, director of Garage; Varvara Melnikova, director of Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design and Partner at Strelka KB; Evgeny Gusyatinsky, film program curator at Garage; Dmitry Konyakhin, director of the Technical Equipment and Construction Department at Garage; Aleksander Us, co-founder and creative director at Sila Sveta multimedia studio; Aleksander Ryabsky, co-founder of FAS(t) architectural studio; and Olga Treivas, architect and partner at FORM architecture firm.
You can find further information and apply on Garage’s website.
Applications will be accepted until August 16, 2019.
