The Polytechnic Museum to be Reconstructed by a Japanese

On Friday, the creator of the future face of the Polytechnic Museum in Moscow was decided during a final tour of the tender. Japan’s Junya Ishigami has been given the opportunity to bring to life his green renovation plan.

      Junya Ishigami, the winner of the Golden Lion at the 12th Venice Architecture Biennale, presented his project together with the Arup bureau, which, in particular, designed a project of a world-famous Sydney's Opera in 1973. The architect's main idea is to create a park area around the museum and so to spread the exhibition space into the museum’s yard and place exhibits in a covered garden. The renovation works will alter the interiors, but the whole historical look of the building will not be changed. 

      The Junya Ishigami's project was supported by 9 out of 15 votes of the guardianship board members, while his opponent, American Thomas Leeser, received only 6.

      You may look at the projects of all the finalists on the site of "The Village" magazine. In particular, it is said there that the renovation works are due to by finished by 2016, when the new museum will open to the public.

        Plans for the Polytechnic Museum's reconstruction were made public in April 2010, when the Russian President ordered to revive the famous science museum, which had been once one of the top science and technology venues in the world, but then had fallen into decay.

      Another winner of the tender for the Polytechnic Museum's reconstruction was announced last year. It is the British Event Communications Company, which will develop the main concept of organizing the modern exhibition space and design the museum's expositions and repositories.
