From 2008 to 2011 Garage occupied the building of the former Bakhmetevsky Bus Garage in Obraztsova Street, Moscow (which gave the museum its name), designed by the constructivist architect Konstantin Melnikov. From 2012 to 2015, the Museum was based in a temporary pavilion in Gorky Park designed by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban. Since 2015, Garage has been located in the building of the former restaurant Vremena Goda (1968), reconstructed by Rem Koolhaas and OMA (the Netherlands).
Since 2017, Garage has worked with architects from various countries to construct temporary pavilions on Garage Square, which operate as the Garage Screen summer cinema.
In November 2021, the Museum presented the design project for its new building, the Hexagon pavilion (1923), which is being reconstructed by the Japanese architecture firm SANAA (Sejima and Nishizawa and Associates).
After reconstruction, the Hexagon and Vremena Goda will form a joint space for a variety of art practices, including performative and multidisciplinary projects.
