“It’s one of my most beautiful projects and it is an Italian victory, the museum and educational center must become a milestone and reflect the image of the new generation.” (Massimiliano Fuksas). The “Moscow Polytechnic Museum and Educational Centre” in Moscow (about 31,403 square meters) will be located in the “Sparrow Hills”, about 10 km from the Red Square, at a cost of 180 million dollars. Near the site there are several buildings built during the “socialist classicism”, monumental buildings, among which the library of Moscow State University.

The project is composed of four elements that make up a sculpture of irregular geometry, entirely covered by copper pre-oxidized that sends back streaks of green and blue. The elements are connected to each other through the internal levels. They develop across and lay on a transparent case that looks at the city. The Museum and Educational Centre include: a cafe, a shop, two auditoriums of different sizes (between 500 and 800 seats) designed as parallelepiped made of red wood and three winter gardens with a sliding roof, several conference / auditorium rooms, the Science and Technology Center with support services, exhibition halls, science / art gallery, exhibition area of the Museum’s collection, exhibition Maths, cinema / auditorium, several laboratories, a library, a workshop, the exhibition area of the Science and Technology Museum Center.
