2月20号，OMA公布俄罗斯重要艺术博物馆——新特列季亚科夫画廊（New Tretyakov Gallery on Krymsky Val）更新方案。这是OMA在俄罗斯的第三个文化项目。
特列季亚科夫画廊是俄罗斯最重要的艺术博物馆之一，馆藏包括马列维奇、康定斯基、夏加尔、Aleksandr Deyneka等艺术家的重要作品。场馆原由N. P. Sukoyan和Y. N. Sheverdyaev设计，于1983年建成，是俄罗斯最大的博物馆建筑（群）。
Moscow, February 20, 2018 – OMA’s renovation plans of the New Tretyakov Gallery on Krymsky Val have been unveiled. Reserve will collaborate on the project as a local partner.
The New Tretyakov 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. The original design by N.P. Sukoyan and Y.N. Sheverdyaev was approved in 1964 and completed in 1983, and consists of multiple exhibition halls; the combined program adds up to a total floor area of 61.091m². It is the largest museum building in Russia, marked by a number of improvisations and additions that have been added over time, fragmenting the vast hallways and grand exhibition spaces into clusters of smaller rooms.
Rem Koolhaas: “Our proposal is a reconsideration of the New Tretyakov, focusing on improving its spatial infrastructure and the elimination of dysfunctional parts. We also undo the absolute separation between museum and the House of Artist, and remove a number of walls to make the different components more accessible and visible. Because of its size, it is almost impossible to consider it as a homogeneous entity; mode interventions unaffordable in Soviet times, such as escalators, improve circulation and draw together the different autonomous elements of the museum complex.”
OMA’s design identifies four sectors, clarifying the orientation and creating a basis for architectural differentiation. Each of these sectors – Art Storage, an Education Center, the Collection, and a Festival Hall – has a distinctive identity and role, and is linked by a new pedestrian route along the embankment side of the Moscow River. Carefully placed cutouts in the façade open up the interior spaces to the city.
After OMA/AMO’s research for the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg and the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow, this is the third cultural project by OMA in Russia.
