Located in the heart of Warsaw (Poland), new Museum MoMA designed to become a reference point for the cultural centers of the new millennium. Project, designed by Finnish architectural studio ALA Architects, is a bold statement that can challenge the iconic building located near the Palace of Culture built in the Soviet era.
The structure uses the reflectivity and transparency to create a contrasting effect, responding to the demands of the exhibition halls and the surrounding urban fabric a new museum.
The building has only two surfaces. Sculptural curved wall of solid and static structural element is a fascinating and documentary evidence of our time. Glass wall, as a showcase represents the internal contents of the museum and at the same time, works as a giant, ever-changing image display.
The wavy portion of the building clad in chrome, has the ability to reflect surrounding landscape, sky, and the dynamics of their movement. The interiors of the museum, outlined the two walls are a combination of their different qualities – light and heavy fragments, straight and wavy lines, the stability and dynamics, both temporary and permanent characteristics.
The museum has a total, holistic and unique aspects that can be completely hidden from view from outside, or completely transparent. Through manipulation of the glass wall can be controlled quantity and quality of space coverage of the museum.
The large gallery space can be divided into smaller units, or to open all borders to become a single continuous space.
