Heneghan Peng Architects Selected to Design Contemporary Arts Center in Moscow


Heneghan Peng Architects won an international competition for a new National Centre for Contemporary Arts (NCCA) at Moscow’s Khodynskoe Pole. Selected from a shortlist of three, the Dublin-based practice will now further develop their winning scheme which vertically stacks exhibition spaces as flexible “trays” to maximize accessibility and visually connect the NCCA’s activities to the surrounding landscape.

Once complete, the large-scale building will host a variety of permanent and temporary exhibitions, as well as lectures, professional conferences, concerts, performances, studios, art education facilities and more.

As well as the Irish practice, Spanish firm Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos and MEL from Moscow were also shortlisted.
