3X1 / JAPA architects : Javier Ponce / Spain, Barcelona
The Floor plan will held the Museum of local lore (MLL), the new Yaroslavl Museum of Modern art (YMMA) and the Museum of history of the city (MH). A new water mirror memorial will be located on the upper part of the Building. The Water mirror Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl plane crash victims .The names of each of the the players, coaching staff and flight crew of the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl tragedy are inscribed inside the reflecting pool as a powerful reminder. During Winter months, the water mirror will become an ice skating rink for the people.The design is highly sustainable, incorporating numerous passive and active means to reduce carbon emissions and contribute to create biodiversity.The challenge has been to ensure that this new 3 X 1 Cultural HUB meets the optimum design to position its performance as one of the foremost examples of building design in relation to sustainability whilst maximising the sense of comfort. We pretend the proposal to be a dynamic and inclusive one, where public space,the new building and the surrounding green consitute significant aspects of the area’s identity and attractiveness.The Project belongs to all. Implementation can be in small steps (Pashing strategy), but in the context of a viable long-term vision.
