The NCCA is a vertical element in the center of the Khodynka field, towering above the place where the airfield used to be. Exhibition spaces are designed as galleries located one above the other. This allows you to visit one specific gallery, and view the entire collection. Thanks to the vertical organization of space, access to galleries is simplified, and the visitor can climb to the desired floor without going through the entire building.
The authors of the project propose to keep the runways, and to establish a park in other areas. Skating rinks, flower gardens, skateboarding areas will be organized on the runways.
– exhibition spaces are located on the upper floors of the building;
– NCCA activities are concentrated on the ground floor;
– visitors will be informed about all areas of the museum.
The main task is to create quick and easy navigation. An escalator rises from the lobby to the exhibition space, passes through the storage area and administrative premises as through archaeological layers, demonstrating what is behind the exhibition.
There are many routes for different visitors – both amateurs and professionals. The multi-level foyer allows you to solve various problems, using all the features of the park.
NCCA – link, vertical axis uniting the park, Aviapark shopping center and museum.
Universal spaces of various sizes and heights are suitable for holding various exhibitions. The architect provides the infrastructure, curators and artists create the museum.
