The concert hall is in the form of a round-shaped high-tech building with leaded light glazing facade and a translucent opening dome made in the form of a stylized clock face. The current time will be indicated by a light arrow flickering on the dome. The facade is decorated with a thematic graphic print with numbers and spirals of time. The atrium of the main entrance to the complex is also decorated in a “clock theme” by rotating art gears - visitors will pass through the current clock mechanism on the escalators of the author’s design. The facility will be nominated in the Guinness Book of Records as «The largest architectural clock in the world».
Based on the study of world experience in the field of entertainment, FUN GENERATION developed the concept of high-tech multifunctional cultural and entertainment facility.
In the development and implementation of the concept and technological solutions of the FUN GENERATION project, more than 200 foreign and Russian companies are involved, which are the experts in specialized fields of activity and possessing high professional competencies.
As part of the detalization of the project idea, the layout of the main space of the facility on a 1: 1 scale was made, variants of architectural solutions and functional layouts were developed and analyzed.
The result of the pre-project preparation was the selection of the design solution and the site for the construction of the facility as part of the Building Core of the Moscow International Business Centre "Moscow-City".
The regulatory status of FUN GENERATION in the implemented comprehensive project of public-private partnership: The Investor and the Technical customer, the Manager of the design and construction of the facility, the Proprietor of the facility and the operating company.
The concert hall is in the form of a round-shaped high-tech building with leaded light glazing facade and a translucent opening dome made in the form of a stylized clock face. The current time will be indicated by a light arrow flickering on the dome.
The facility format “Concert Hall MIBC “Moscow-City” - “ENTERTAINMENT CENTRE” is a public multifunctional cultural and entertainment leisure centre.
The project provides for the creation of a modern complex with a high-tech transformable hall, working around the clock 365 days a year, designed for concerts, shows, festivals, celebrations, ceremonies, performances, exhibitions, conferences, presentations, sports events, educational programs.
Daily leisure is provided by modern infrastructure, including a concert boutique hotel, public catering facilities, congress and exhibition units and an art gallery, a sports and fitness training complex, a media centre, concert and service provider.
The development of the architectural concept for the facade of the Concert Hall, together with the actualization of the architectural and functional concept of the City Square project, was carried out in collaboration with FUN GENERATION and the architects of GORPROEKT CJSC under the direction of Philipp Nikandrov.
The translucent opening dome of the Facility is designed and manufactured by LANIK (Spain) together with the German partners in accordance with the concept developed by FUN GENERATION. The Mosavtosteklo company developed the patented technology of special electrically heated double-glazed windows of complex geometric shapes. The installation of metal structures and the glazing of the dome was performed by DS-Engineering.
Under the dome there is a functional core of the facility - a high-tech transforming hall with the main stage, automated stage modules and guest tiers. For guests in the hall, the dome will provide a unique original view of the skyscrapers, favourably framing the building. The dome opening function will allow for holding open-air events in summer. In the view subspace of the Concert Hall along the circumference of the leaded light glazing facades, there are guest concert halls and a conceptual concert Boutique Hotel 5*.
The project partner is Ushuaia Entertainment S.L. (Ibiza, Spain) - International brand in the field of entertainment.
For public spaces that make up more than 50% of the facility area (23 thousand sq.m.), a single design project of interiors has been developed that creates an atmosphere of an integral unique facility that meets the highest international standards of modern cultural centres. The design project was developed by the bureau of Marcel Wanders, the cult Dutch designer - Wanders Wonders B.V. (Marcel Wanders ©) is a world-renowned interior design studio that owns over 1900 iconic projects. Marcel Wanders works with such prestigious brands as Alessi, Baccarat, Bisazza, Christofle, Kosé Corporation, Flos, KLM, Hyatt Hotels Corporation, Louis Vuitton, Morgans Hotel Group. Today, many of Marcel Wanders' projects are recognized in the most famous museums of the world including the Pompidou Center (FR), MoMA (USA) and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (NL). Adaptation of Marcel Wanders' design project is performed by Atria Magna, the Russian architectural bureau.
Acoustic modelling of the transformable hall was performed by PEUTZ company under the leadership of Martin Vercammen (V.L.S. Vercammen). The company's references include Royal Albert Hall London and Ajax Amsterdam ArenA.
Climate-control solutions for the transformer hall with an openable dome are implemented by GSA Consulting Engineers (USA) and provide more than 40 configurations with different climate parameters (humidity, temperature, heat exchange). Air quality solutions include technologies of Paddock Evacuator® Company, Inc. (USA).
Outstanding experts and professionals participated in the development of key concepts and functional technologies of the project together with the authoring team of FUN GENERATION:
FUN GENERATION with great respect relates to the experience and knowledge of the project partners, allowing to achieve optimal solutions and implement the ideas of the project.
The concert hall will open in 2023 and will be part of the City Square which opened in 2019.
