The start of an international open competition of architectural concepts for Ukraina Hotel entryway

September 2013 – The OAO HOTEL UKRAINA, with the support of the non-state educational institution Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design, are pleased to announce the opening of a competition for the redesign of the entryway to this cultural heritage site of regional significance. This two-stage competition, lasting from 17th September 2013 to 25th February 2014, gives architects from all over the world the rare chance to work with an example of Moscow’s unique Stalinist architectural heritage.

The Ukraina Hotel is one of seven original Soviet skyscrapers (‘sisters’) that form a famous silhouette on Moscow’s skyline. Built in the 1950s, the Ukraina is today a landmark, marking the beginning of Kutuzovsky prospekt, one of the city’s main transport arteries.

The competition was initiated on 15 February 2013 by Sergey Kuznetsov, Chief Architect of Moscow. In his own words, the Hotel Ukraine is “not only an architectural monument, but one of the symbols of the town. It is thus absolutely crucial that any new additions to the fabric of this iconic historical building be carried out with great delicacy and at a fitting conceptual level.”
