Description
The Centre of Contemporary Architecture in Russia is announcing an open architectural competition with international participation for the best architectural concept of a new museum in the city of Perm, where the collections of the Perm Art Gallery would move to.

Perm region is one of the strongest and ambitious in Russia. Its vast territory spans between Europe and Asia, on the boundary between Ural mountains and steppe flatland.

Perm city is the eastern outpost of Europe. Its showplace is Perm State Art Gallery, which is 85 years old in 2007. The pride of the collection is Russian wooden hieratic sculpture of the 18th through 20th centuries. These amazing works of art are on the edge of sculpture and painting, Christianity and Paganism. The collection is unique throughout the museums of the world.

For the first time in Russia it was decided to make a museum a city-forming object, built by ideology and by technologies of 21st century. The new museum should become a city brand, a calling card of the city and region, like the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao by Frank Gehry, Kiasma by Stephen Hall in Helsinki, Graz museum by Peter Cook and CCA by Zaha Hadid in Cincinnati.
