This project aims to restore Pushkinsky Cinema Hall significance while offering a unique landmark and vivid gathering point to Moscow’s inhabitants and visitors. Since its glorious days as a public cultural center, the cinema has lost its surroundings symbiosis, thus breaking the linkage between the building and its square, the interior and exterior. Using cutting edge technology and contemporary formalization, this design offers a neoteric appearance to the building facades and extends its main program, the cinema hall, to radiate to the square and encircling city. The new and re-public building will then roll back the cinema prestigious era for the future years.
