The Hexagon pavilion

The Hexagon pavilion

Garage Museum of Contemporary Art presents the Hexagon pavilion by Japanese architectural firm SANAA (Sejima and Nishizawa and Associates).

The building was constructed is 1923 as the Machines and Tools (Mechanization) Pavilion of the Machine-Building Section at the First All-Russian Agricultural and Handicraft Industries Exhibition. The Machines and Tools Pavilion was the only one constructed using reinforced concrete (the other pavilions were wooden and have not been preserved).

The Hexagon will become a space for social interaction and the display of a variety of art practices. It will have three exhibition galleries (two in the facets of the building and one on the underground level), a library, a bookshop, and a café. The internal courtyard of the building will be a public space. The functional floor space of the Hexagon will total 9,500 square meters.
