GES-2 Powerstation

Moscow, Russia

Originally built as a pre-Soviet powerstation on the Moskva River in the centre of Moscow not far from the Kremlin, the building is set to undergo a Tate Modern-like conversion. Renzo Piano Building Workshop has been tasked with turning the derelict interior into an art museum for the 21st century. We visited the building just before work began this year on the conversion and will revisit it when it re-opens in 2019.
