Yaroslavl Contemporary Historical / Matthew James Murphy / Ireland, Dublin
The basic idea, concept of the project:
The basic idea of the project looks as how Yaroslavl developed in an urban sense, a radial pattern from its centre. The project site lies within a block in this radial pattern. The project utilises this block of context to form a museum which responds to the surroundings as much as it responds to its own programme.
The project uses the context of historical churches and the generous space of the stadium to create a building which acknowledges the presence of history and its importance, but also views to the future of the public by providing usable external space.
Technical features of the object:
The project heavily depends on using northern light to illuminate the spaces. This allows for a preservation and constant lighting for the exhibits. The project also utilises glass block infill to diffuse southern light entering the building and create a calm atmosphere. These combinations lead to a strict building form providing informative and educational space. Читать далее
