Avoiding superficial operations of make-up, this design is intended to execute a reinterpretation, a proposal that adds value, shades, revitalizes and reformulates the building as a whole.
Reimagining the traditional typology of a theater (which in this project was carried out originally in a completely literal manner, although stripped of the usual eclectic language), this has been conceived as a non-superficial façade which houses the representative role corresponding to the ceremonial circulation, and the paraphernalia-spectacle related to the cinema as a social event, which emphasizes the character of the Pushkinsky Cinema as the venue of events, festivals, galas, etc.
Based on a ruled geometry similar to the one that defines the hyperbolic paraboloid, the façade is described by the rotation of a rectangle as it increases in height, which has fixed the upper left and right corners.
Through this geometry the entrance of the cinema is dynamized, avoiding the static solemnity of the original building, and providing an architectural promenade that invites one both to enjoy the ceremonial access as well as the architectural element itself. On the other hand, the secondary access to the podium and main level are improved by continuing the interior staircase through the plinth of the building, which will help to rehabilitate the urban role of the spaces below the platform, while preserving the dominance of the frontal access from the park.
All this without damage to a modern and unique image, a new identity consistent with the times that will allow Pushkinsky Cinema to revive old moments of glory in this, its second youth.
