New Museum to be Opened in the Melnikovs House

Russian Architect Konstantin Melnikov Museum will be opened in the Melnikovs’ House in Moscow by decision of the RF Ministry of Culture.

      The Melnikovs’ House is located in the Krivoarbatsky Lane in Moscow. This house of unusual design was designed and built by the architect Konstantin Melnikov for his family and his own studio in 1927-1929. Today the studio house is a world famous monument of the Soviet avant-garde. The building is in the centre of attention of international organizations for the protection of cultural heritage of the 20th century.

      Due to no major repairs since the house was constructed, it is now on the brink of total destruction. Hereditary claims blocked local authorities from a decision on restoring the house and turning it into a museum. However, these issues were settled in the course of time. Thus, the Ministry of Culture has decreed to reconstruct the building and open the Architect Melnikov Museum.

      As is reported, five hundred architecture museum exhibits, such as movies, photographs, architectural graphic art, and layouts from the collection of the Architecture Museum will be handed over to the new museum. The Melnikovs House Museum expositions will also be enriched with masterpieces from the architect’s creative archive, which were given to the state by his will.
