An Avant-garde Railway Station to Be Built in Moscow
Moskomarkhitektura agreed on the design of the building of Varshavskaya station. It was inspired by the works of Kazimir Malevich, Lyubov Popova and El Lissitzky, reports mos.ru. The entrance hall of the Varshavskaya railway station will be designed in the avant-garde style.
The structure will have an asymmetric shape and consist of broken lines. The facades of the station will be painted red, decorated with an ornament of white and black arrows, symbolizing the speed of the train. The design, inspired by Soviet avant-garde artists was approved by Moskomarkhitektura. «When developing the architectural solution for Varshavskaya station, the authors of the project tried to reproduce the ideas of avant-garde artists of the 20th century. Among them: Lyubov Popova, Kazimir Malevich, and El Lissitzky. The works of the masters of the past were distinguished by bright colors, broken lines and asymmetry.
The development of railroad transport is now being given special attention, for example, Mayor Sergey Sobyanin supports the idea of a new megaproject: to turn radial directions into pass-through diameters,» said the chief architect of Moscow, Sergey Kuznetsov. He added that the platform design will feature red and gray colors, the pillars supporting the roof will be in the form of rhomboids. The new railway Varshavskaya station of Paveletsky direction of the Moscow railway is planned to be built by the end of the year. It will have a transfer passage to Verhknie Kotly station of the Moscow Central Circle (MCC) on the principle of «dry feet».
The passage will have an architectural illumination and a canopy that will protect the passengers from bad weather. The length of the passage is only 50 meters. Varshavskaya will take some of the load of the Nagatinskaya metro station of the Serpukhov-Timiryazevskaya line, and also reduce the load on the Paveletsky railway station. Passengers will no longer have to go to the end station of the line to get to the desired point of the city. The Moscow central circle is a new surface line for the metro. It was commissioned on September 10, 2016. The MCC includes 31 stations with 14 transfers by metro and six — by suburban electric trains. From each station you can also get to buses, trolleybuses or trams.
