Any chance of a reconciliation between the State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts and the architects Foster + Partners seems to receding.
Moscow’s chief architect, Sergei Kuznetsov, told Archi.ru a Russian architecture news website, that while “the question of Norman Foster’s participation” in the expansion of the museum is still being discussed, he admitted “chances are slim that [Foster] will continue to work” on the project.
The architect revealed in August that Foster + Partners had resigned from the project, accusing the Moscow museum of side lining the firm for the past three years. Kuznetsov says that “neither the city nor the museum have any grievances against Foster”.
