Pushkinskiy Cinema

The main idea of the offered solution is transformation of Pushkinsky cinema while preserving its original historical volume. Modern expressive elements ‘sprout’ through the semicentennial structure, symbolically connecting the old and the new by means of the shape and materials. Such interpretation turns the cinema from an ordinary architectural object into a real place of interest — a bright communicative dominant which evidences by its effective non-trivial appearance that inside a modern eyeful — the product of digital technologies — is awaiting cinema connoisseurs. In the project the original building’s facades and galleries are blanketed with a metal structure covered with white polymer Corian. Thin slots are glazed with transparent material SentryGlas. From the side of the main facade the whole structure is supported with openwork treelike pillars.
