PMCA - Perm Museum of Contemporary Art  

Perm, Russia

 

​Asymptote was recently awarded an Honorable Mention in the competition to design a new building for the Perm Museum in Russia. Asymptote’s design is for a building with two components—a chromed underside and an expansive, ebony landscape above—that form a provocative union of materials. At once an inverted landscape trailing across the entirety of the site, the building is also a surface of gesture that moves counter punctually above, two dialectic terrains that effectively create a singular, powerful object.​
