OMA / Rem Koolhaas’ plans to renovate the largest museum building in Russia, the new Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, have been revealed.
"Originally completed in 1983, the N.P. Sukoyan and Y.N. Sheverdyaev-designed institute currently consists of multiple exhibition halls, adding up to a total floor area of 61,091 sqm. As grand as it is large, the museum houses an extensive and important collection of Russian art, including seminal work from Malevich, Kandinsky, Chagall, and Soviet artists such as Aleksandr Deyneka and Vera Mukhina."
