Heneghan Peng wins competition for NNCA in Moscow

On 23 December the winning scheme for the new NCCA (National Centre for Contemporary Arts) in Moscow was announced. Winning firm Heneghan Peng Architects competed against rival firms Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos from Spain and Russian architectural studio Mel to design the new NCCA in Khodynskoe Pole.

The competition is a landmark event in the cultural life of Russia and Moscow, and will serve to create a prominent architectural image in the large-scale project that is the redevelopment of Khodynskoe Pole.

The international open competition consisted of two rounds, together lasting six months. More than 900 applications were handled and around 250 of them met the competition requirements. In the first round (20 August - 20 September), an elimination process took place ending with the jury’s selection of ten participants. To conclude the second round (2 October - 22 November), the international jury selected three finalists.
