The Garage Museum headquarters

The Garage Museum headquarters

The Garage Museum was moved from its original location at the Bahmetyevsky Bus Depot to Gorky Park in 2012. Its headquarters, were relocated to a seemingly anonymous building partly occupied by the park administration. Research into the history of the site revealed an architectural palimpsest, a building with many lives that was marked by crucial events in Moscow’s history. The project focused on opening up the space and stripping it of recent layers to reveal its historic core. The plan of the cinema was adapted to the needs of the Garage Museum headquarters.
