The dream of any architect might be to build a structure to become the cultural core of a city -- a goal which 'The Veins' Pushkinsky Cinema strives to attain through the infusion of great strength in symbolism. As a competition submission for a new arts center off Pushkin Square in Moscow, Russia, it has evidently been conceived with a great deal of heart.
Quite literally, the monumental public edifice is meant to visually and functionally mimic the human heart. This comparison can be easily understood with one's first glance at the dynamic pink structure, formed of a complex tectonic envelope and defined by an elaborate texture of weblike arterial lines. Designed by Sam Cho, Jonathan Alotto and Jaenes Bong, 'The Veins' Pushkinsky Cinema proposal is alive and pumping with the performances inside and the steady stream of pedestrian circulation throughout.
