Hermitage Modern Contemporary Museum

Moscow, Russia
The Hermitage Modern Contemporary Museum (HMCM) extends the long and remarkable history of the
Saint‐Petersburg's State Hermitage Museum. This new Museum for Moscow will be the centerpiece of the ZILART initiative,
a 65‐hectare urban master plan.
Design Concept
The 15,000 square meter project sits on the historic site of the former ZIL factory near Moscow's city center. The HMCM building will include galleries and exhibition spaces, public amenities, a research center, and a performance hall. The Museum will exhibit work from the State Hermitage Museum's impressive permanent collection as well as both traveling and special exhibitions of 20th and 21st‐century art. The Museum includes a variety of gallery types, including intimately scaled spaces dedicated to the viewing of early modern paintings and larger, expansive spaces showcasing contemporary art and site‐specific installations.
