Architectural concept of the Russian Center of Science and Culture

Architectural bureau A.Len as Architects

The complex consists of several blocks: the cultural center, the sports complex, the covered swimming pool and the inhabited block, also includes such functions as the library, showrooms, the business center with rooms for the international meetings and conferences, cinema, club and multipurpose rooms.


The core of the cultural center is the courtyard - the atrium which is traditional for many Asian countries.


The main entrance is accented by the strongly overhanging console, and the volume of the building is minimalist and laconic.


Facades are covered with the modern ornamental parametrical drawing which is created from elements borrowed from the Russian traditional ornaments. The drawing is performed as perforation in hinged concrete figured panels.
