The Austrian and Kuwaiti-based design team suggested cladding Pushkinsky Cinema’s [2] new entrance in Dupont Corian [3] and allowing natural ventilation and lighting by cutting out small holes in strategic parts of the facade. They then proposed to use Dupont Sentry glass [4] and sliding doors for the main entrance and the sliding doors. Rossiya’s Flourish is designed to mirror Moscow’s recent renaissance, so it’s definitely a swank proposal. Even so, the use of colorful LEDs gives it something of a sustainable edge. In any case, it’s a visual treat that is a nice way to start a Friday!
