In the form of atoms and spheres, the architectural studio IND Architects has created a unique media facade (in the competition for the development of the pavilion) for the Pavilion of Atomic Energy in the ENEA in Moscow, the head of the studio, Amir Idiatulin, reported in an interview with RIA Novosti. IND-Architects, in collaboration with the American bureau FR-EE, created for the competition this futuristic concept for the pavilion under the name "Reactor". Outside, the building will represent an elegant structure with a bright interactive media facade. It will work as an educational element, showing the principle of the creation of an atom and its properties.The internal space of the pavilion is organized around the core: similar to an atom, in which electrons move on orbits round the core. The media facade extends to the building’s kernel, inducing extraordinary colourful impressions on visitors. In the “Reaktor” pavilion, it will be possible to run interactive exhibitions. The spherical space will provide audiences with access to educational information, exhibitions and the auxiliary service zones spinning around. The interactive and technological LED facade symbolizes the process of the distribution of energy as a result of a nuclear reaction. The operational roof of the building is to be covered with "clever" panels. They will generate energy for nocturnal illumination of the facade. The pavilion will be heated by a geothermal heat pump, extracting heat from the soil and groundwater. The design could be equipped with tanks to collect rain water and ventilation is down to perforations in the structure of the building, he added.  The future pavilion of nuclear energy will be located on the former site of pavilion ?19 in VDNKh in Moscow. Results for the development of the architectural concept of the pavilion of nuclear energy in VDNKh will be announced in September. The competition involved seven finalists, among them Yevgeny Gerasimov and Partners, Ital Engineering Consortium International, Archea Assotiati, Zanetti Design (Russia - Italy), ABD Architects (Moscow, Russia) and the consortium IND Architects, FR-EE (Russia - USA). The customer is the corporation "Rosatom".
