FUND OF MEMORIALIZING VICTIMS OF THE POLITICAL REPRESSION
The pavilion is designed to display a variety of temporary exhibitions held at the Museum of the History of the Gulag. The three-nave interior space of the pavilion resembles a classical basilica in the original sense of common and public space.
The walls and pediments of the pavilion are sewn up with a board with a slot, which is why during the day the pavilion is filled with an openwork play of light and shadow, and at night it becomes a large, dimly smoldering lamp on the territory of the museum.
Wall-gates allow you to open the passage to the exposition at any part of the facade, which presents the museum with fairly wide exposition capabilities. In addition, the architecture of the building fully shows metaphor for the thin line between openness and closeness, freedom and lack of freedom, information and mystery, between light and darkness, which makes you think not only about the Gulag, but also about the world in which we live today.
