Italian architects win project for Moscow Polytechnic museum

Italian architects Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas have won a competition to design the Moscow Polytechnic Museum and Education Centre along with Russian studio Speech which is due for completion in 2017.

The design consists of four copper-clad elements that appear to have been “cut by the wind” which sends back streaks of green and blue, with elements connected to each other through the internal levels.

Planned to be built at the Sparrow Hills district of Moscow, the $180 million space will be close to monuments including the Moscow State University and the Luzkniki Stadium.

“It’s one of my most beautiful projects and it is an Italian victory,” said Massimiliano Fuksas. “The museum and educational center must become a milestone and reflect the image of the new generation.”
