Famous Museum Complex Risks to Turn into an Orange

Scandal is brewing around the museum complex of The Central House of Artist) open for public from 1979 on the bank of the Moskva River.
      The owners of the building, namely the Tretyakov Gallery and the International Confederation of Artists declare they will not allow bringing down the CHA and building a new complex instead of it.
      The project named Apelsin (Orange) developed with the participation of Norman Foster has been recently presented at the Cannes Real Estate Exhibition. The Inteko Company headed by Elena Baturina, wife of the Moscow Mayor is willing to take part in the possible tender.
      The project Orange suggests an original architectural decision: a 15-storeyed construction made up of five parts slanted and shaped as a gigantic orange will house exhibition halls, offices, hotels and apartments.
      Yet, the project implementation is possible only according to all rules. A contest for reconstruction must be announced first, in which Inteko would take part and win it or not.
