The nineteenth century museum will be renovated with respect to the existing qualities. The courtyard is covered to form the new heart of the museum. This central hall is opened up on all sides to connect to the public domain of the city. The glazed roof of the courtyard forms a big event hall, hovering over the museum. This multi-purpose hall creates a new public space where the techological future of Russia is represented while a spectacular panorama over Moscow city center is offered.

The extension of the nineteenth century Perm State Tchaikovsky Opera and Ballet Theatre is conceived as a gently stepped podium forming a continuation of the park landscape. Two objects are floating above the podium, as sculptures in the Park, next to the existing theatre. One side houses the Rehearsal Studios in a vertical element, the other side houses the new theatre room in a horizontal element. By opening the rehearsal rooms, the foyer and the theatre room to the park, a multitude of theatrical possibilities within one single complex are offered. A revolutionary machine floor and ceiling makes several theatre settings possible. Allowing the new Theatre to host all kinds of contemporary theatre productions.
