Along with the architectural firm Kleihues + Kleihues, schlaich bergermann partner has won the first prize in the international competition for the Maidan Museum planned in the Ukrainian capital.
After a two-phase process, the winning design was awarded by an international jury a few weeks ago. Kleihues + Kleihues prevailed against 15 participants. Our Berlin office successfully assisted the architects as structural engineers.
The Maidan Museum is a symbolic building project of recent political history. Near the central square in Kiev, which became world-famous through the Maidan protests in 2013/2014, an ensemble consisting of museum and monument is to be built.
The winning design architecturally implements the "Storm of the Hill" that took place at that time, coming from Maidan Square. A ramp winds around the building and continues inside around a large glass foyer. The structure of the façade is inspired by the memorial niches set up by relatives and friends for the victims of the protests at Maidan Square.
We look forward to further joint planning with the teams of Kleihues + Kleihues and Transsolar.
