“Inspiration is needed in geometry, just as much as in poetry.”
Paying tribute to these great words by Alexander Pushkin, our approach was to start by studying the simple geometry through which the building was originally conceived. We choose to respect the geometry of the building and create additional program
that would liven the building by bringing people into it. People inspire poetry and to really make Pushkinsky cinema a landmark of culture in Russia we feel the need to activate it for the people. A facade is sometimes a superficial treatment provided to building to conceal what would otherwise be eye-sores so we chose to do less.
