In 2004, the National Center for Contemporary Art was launched in a building on Zoologicheskaya Str. The area housed two exhibition halls, museum storage spaces, library, media library, and administrative premises.
The building that housed the NCCA was built in the late 1920s and belonged to the Gosteasvet Theatrical Lighting Equipment Plant. The industrial complex included five buildings constructed at different times, which, by the early 2000s, were in emergency condition.
The project for the industrial complex reconstruction — including the plant’s production workshop now housing the NCCA — was developed by the NCCA management together with the architect Mikhail Khazanov. The workshop’s utilitarian brick case was lined with colorful bricks, with a steel frame placed outside the building.
Since 2020, the building on Zoologicheskaya Street is part of The Pushkin Museum.
