The proposal for this abandoned city in a former USSR military base, is based on the maximum integration with the exiting surroundings. The blocks (museum, theater, library, concert hall) are organized around a central panoramic tower. The modularity of the basic structural element (a trilithon) give the possibility of an easy expansion of the library, while the rest of the complex absorbs as many as possible of the existing situation: the informal garages, the views onto the church, the meadows.
