Garage and Strelka KB announce architectural competition for Garage Screen Summer Cinema 2022

Garage Museum of Contemporary Art has announced the launch of the third open competition for the development of the architectural concept for Garage Screen summer cinema. The winning project will be built in 2022.

This time the organizers suggest the participants improve the professional and creative potential of their teams by inviting artists to join the working groups. 

The aim of the competition is to enable architects and artists to implement their design ideas as temporary structures on Garage Square. The competition is open to applicants from Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. The organizer of the competition is Strelka KB.

The jury comprises Garage director Anton Belov, director of Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design and Strelka KB partner Varvara Melnikova, head of maintenance and construction at Garage Dmitry Konyakhin, Garage Screen curator Evgeny Gusyatinsky, and the founders of snkh bureau and 2019 competition winners, Ashot and Armine Snkhchyan.

In 2020, the competition for a new pavilion was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The cinema built in 2019 by snkh was open only during August 2020.

Ashot and Armine Snkhchyan commented: "This competition is a great opportunity for emerging architects to build their boldest designs. You don’t get the chance to design a cinema every day, let alone the cinema of a contemporary art museum. For us the competition was an invaluable experience and a confidence booster."

Applications should be made online: https://garagescreen.strelka-challenges.com/.

A masterclass for applicants will be organized in June and announced on Strelka KB and Garage social media.

Applications will be accepted until July 4, 2021.
