Construction of the new terminal at Sheremetyevo Airport in the style of Russian Constructivism:

Sheremetyevo Airport Terminal Building

The architects are the British firm, RMJM. The concept is developed by the Serbian representative office of the bureau, with the assistance of an Italian firm.

The architectural planning solution and interior design of the new terminal “B” of Sheremetyevo Airport is executed in the style of Russian Constructivism.

Sheremetyevo Airport Terminal Building

The construction area totals 55,900 sqm of public zone. The authors of the project derived inspiration from works of master constructivists – Vladimir Tatlin, Alexander Vesnin, Alexander Rodchenko, Nahum Gabo, Lazar Lissitsky and Lyubov Popova. The architectural concept had to reflect “tradition, force and progress which characterize modern Russia”.

Sheremetyevo Airport Terminal Building

The client wanted the new B terminal to become “an exit to the world” through which Russia can tell the story, – im opinion of Goran Nikolic, the head of the Serbian office of RMJM and the chief architect of the project.

The concept, – continues the architect, – focuses attention on feelings of national pride, inherent in Russians. This feeling and openness are turned to the guests arriving to the country. In turn, it has to be clear to foreigners that the ideas created in Russia are so big, ‘as the Russian land’.

Sheremetyevo Airport Terminal Building

The principles of Constructivist art and architecture are used in the logic of the functional organization of space, in a decor and also in geometricity of registration of a floor covering, columns, walls and ceilings.

“Live” digital-panels — large-format displays which broadcast the main images of Russia became bright accent in interiors: beauty of the nature, tourist sights, monuments of the Russian culture, ballet statements.
