Heneghan Peng Wins Competition to Design Moscow Contemporary Art Center

02 January, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell


Dublin-based Heneghan Peng Architects has won the competition to design Moscow’s new National Center for Contemporary Arts (NCCA). The firm proposes a structure from which varied levels will cantilever and create open terraces.



“The exhibition spaces are designed as a series of stacked galleries allowing people to either visit a particular gallery of interest or browse through the entire collection as a whole,” according to Heneghan Peng’s project description. “The advantage of the vertical organization is that galleries are quickly accessible, allowing one to go straight to a single floor without moving horizontally through layers of gallery.”

The nearly 500,000-sq.-ft. building, which also will house temporary exhibition space, an event hall, and two auditoriums, is slated for completion in 2018.
