NCCA – territory of wide opportunities in the limitless plane of Hodinskoye pole. Building appears from a vast park, remains its integral part, culminating space path. Volume interior preserves connection with exterior spaces, which increases its quality. Exhibition starts in the city, in the park, leads visitor into the museum. Volume is formed by green terraces – amphitheaters which make visitor feel engaged. The whole project focuses on the visitors experience through three key-approaches: maximum flexible exhibitions spaces which allow curators and artists to experiment with the boarders of creativity, the entrance area (out) and the entrance hall (in) can operate as a multifunction space which allows to host and present different artistic expressions (performances, installations, street arts, happenings etc) this area creates the sense of a welcome forum when the art can be emerged and the visitors can be engaged.
the museum functionality is the third important point of the project achieved by studying visitors, artifacts and staff circulation, the technical background to create flexible exhibition spaces which can be divided and can operate according to the curators requirements and also by using the principles of an environmental friendly and sustainable building.
