Garage Walks. Architectural Tours of the Hexagon Garage Walks. Architectural Tours of the Hexagon

 

Garage invites visitors to join architectural tours of the Hexagon, the Museum’s future building. As well as learning about the past and future of the building, you will also be able to visit the pavilion before restoration work starts.

The Hexagon (formerly the Machines and Tools Pavilion) was built in 1923 by architects Ivan Zholtovsky, Viktor Kokorin, and Mikhail Parusnikov for the First All-Russian Agricultural and Handicraft Industries Exhibition.

In its new incarnation, the Hexagon will become a space for social interaction and the display of various artistic practices. It will feature three exhibition galleries (two in the facet pavilions and one on the lower ground level), a library, a bookstore, and a café. The courtyard of the building will be an open public space. The functional space of the building will comprise 9,500 square meters. 

The tour begins in Garage Atrium, by the model of the future Hexagon.

Tours run on Saturdays and Sundays at 12:00 and 14:00

Group size: up to 10 people.

Duration: 60 minutes.
