Italian architects from the studio of Gabriele Filippini, who last October won a competition to develop the concept of the Bulgakov Museum, presented on April 19 a project for the development of the museum. The developers intend to expand the museum space, or rather, go beyond it.
"The museum is too small, it does not contain everything you need to tell about Bulgakov. It will become the base on the basis of which the story about the writer will unfold," Filippini said at the presentation.
The authors of the project propose building a multimedia center in a small park on the way from the museum to the Patriarch's Ponds. Moreover, the building will be raised above the ground, so as not to take away the area of the green zone. It can host various exhibitions and small theatrical performances. On the open flat roof offer to place a walking winter garden.
Some events of the Bulgakov Museum will be held at the Patriarch's Ponds - the space itself will not change, but in the summer a scene on pontoons may appear. Another proposal of the developers is to turn the Garden Ring from the Mayakovskaya metro station to the Patriarchs' into a museum in Moscow of the 1920s: plant trees that grew on the ring at that time, remove modern advertising, put up information signs.
The museum itself on Bolshaya Sadovaya will not be overloaded with technical innovations, each room will be devoted to a specific period of the writer’s life.
