Architect Rem Koolhaas and Russian socialite Dasha Zhukova have unveiled plans for a new space for the Garage art gallery A ruined Soviet-era restaurant in Moscow’s Gorky Park is to become the unlikely new home for one of Russia’s hippest contemporary arts centres: the Garage , founded four years ago by the Russian socialite Dasha Zhukova. Zhukova and the architect Rem Koolhaas have unveiled plans to bring back to life a 1960s prefabricated concrete building that would normally be pulled down. “It is the most exciting and biggest change the Garage has undergone,” said Zhukova, revealing the plans at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts on Friday. “I think it will be one of the greatest examples of contemporary architecture in Moscow.” The hunt for a new building began because the lease was ending on the Garage’s current home in the constructivist Bakhmetevsky bus garage and the site was due to be developed into a Jewish heritage museum. “Finding it was a random chance,” said Zhukova, the partner of billionaire Chelsea football club owner Roman Abramovich.
