The Museum and Theatre Complex will create a new cultural hot spot and become the future architectural landmark in the cityscape of Kemerovo – this video explores its artistry

Designed by Coop Himmelb(L)AU

From the architects:

The Museum and Theatre Complex is an open and transparent structure: A publicly accessible sculpture for visitors and residents of Kemerovo.

The building integrates into the surroundings and forms – with its four main functions – a recognisable ensemble. 

A graceful, flying Theatre Cloud, two Crystals for the Museum and the Art Centre, embrace the Public 24h Foyer on top of the Plinth. 

The elevated Public space distributes not only the visitors into the different functions, it also acts as a new communal meeting point for the city. 

Exhibitions in the foyer, events of different purposes and a restaurant will add to the cultural life of Kemerovo.


The heart of the project is in the centre of the building: an auditorium for 950 visitors including a stage tower and back of house areas. The additional functions, such as offices, VIP rooms and rehearsal rooms are arranged in the Cloud. 

Towards the outer side, the public space is partially glazed and offers spectacular views of the surroundings. The plinth of the building extends throughout the site. 

Due to the difference in altitude of the ground, the plinth is forming terraces, which (as well as the restaurant inside the building) can be used at any time of the day, also during holidays and leisure time.
