Dynamic museum design wins 2009 Fall ArchitectsJURY Competition
Budapest, March 18, 2010 – A dynamic design for a modern art museum in Odessa, Ukraine, is the winner of the 2009 Fall ArchitectsJURY competition. Sivak Dmitriy, a student at the Odessa State Academy of Building and Architecture, designed the winning project in ARCHICAD.
“Odessa is a big city with lots of galleries and classical art museums, but there is no museum of modern art. I wanted to give Odessa’s many artists a place to exhibit their work,” Dmitriy said, when asked about his diploma project. The project is located in the heart of the city, an area that is frequented by many tourists and locals alike.
The designer’s intention was to create a museum “using expressive, dynamic, modern forms to emphasize its role, and to create a new destination for visitors to the city.” The project was created without add-ons or plug-ins, which, according to Dmitriy, “shows how flexible ARCHICAD is. For the more difficult parts, I used ARCHICAD’s Mesh tool and Solid Element Operations.” Dmitriy started using ARCHICAD during his first year at the academy. “I always preferred working with ARCHICAD,” he said. “I like ARCHICAD because it is very easy to work with.”
