The principal element of Suprematism in painting, as in architecture, is its liberation from all social or materialist tendencies. Through Suprematism, art comes into its pure and unpolluted form. It has acknowledged the decisive fact of the nonobjective character of sensibility.

Starting from Moscow, up to the waters that divide Russia from Japan; designing an iconic element, functional, representative, and quiet at the same time, that repeats itself in such a large land. We started with two founding elements: the chimney, and the avant-garde. On one hand, an architectural element that comes from a secular tradition of the Siberian stoves. On the other, the visionary ability of the Russian Art, during the centuries and particularly in the ‘900, of guiding and predicting pivotal changes.
The belly of our Pavillion develops itself starting from Malevich’s composition: the Black Circle. The realization is thought to happen through light and mountable materials: wood and steel. A visual and ideal corridor, cross the structure through two large circular windows. An invitation, a warning to remember the road traveled and the one still to go.
