Located in Ekaterinburg, the Russian museum is also a cultural hub for scientific research and acts as a bridge between contemporary art and public city spaces. With a total area of 27,000 square foot, it has sheltered contemporary works since it opened its doors back in 1999. Due to its historical value and unique architectural elements, the architects created the stunning glazed extension without altering the cultural hub’s original outlook.

The new addition features a small waiting area, stairs and a striking see-through terrace that rises above the main historical building, bringing in plenty of natural light. The museum’s new section provides both modern functions and an updated contrasting aesthetic. The stunning Russian National Center for Contemporary Art is now in harmony with the modern art it shows.
