The project proposes a unique fusion between architecture and urbanism, within which a building becomes a neighborhood by eroding itself into an array of particles. Thus, it establishes an inverted poetical relation with the particles that emanate from the industrial chimneys of the port of Dunkirk, France. In terms of program, the project includes a theater, numerous workshops, exhibition and administrative spaces within its most vertical part, followed by artist residencies, student housing, as well as regular urban blocks with semi-private gardens.

New home for Garage in Moscow in Moscow, Russia by OMA

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

Article source: OMA


Now that preservation is increasingly important in our approach to existing cities, the period between the 1960s and 1980s is, worldwide, an exception. We can imagine saving Fin de Siècle, early Modernism, but the more anonymous and impersonal architecture that emerged after World War II has few fans and almost no defenders. That is why we were very happy to work on turning the almost-ruin of Vremena Goda into the new house for Garage. We were able, with our client and her team, to explore the qualities of generosity, dimension, openness, and transparency of the Soviet wreckage and fi nd new uses and interpretations for them; it also enabled us to avoid the exaggeration of standards and scale that is becoming an aspect of contemporary art spaces. – Rem Koolhaas
