'Stalingrad Battle' Museum, Volgograd, Russia
The “Stalingrad Battle” Museum was designed by the famous Soviet architect V.E.Maslayev in 1964-1968. The concept of the museum is based on the dramatic effect of contrast between the ruins of the old mill partially bombed in World War II and the modern building of unusual shape finished in white limestone.
The lighting concept developed by &light enhances this effect by floodlighting all the modern structures with neutral white light to symbolize the idea of regeneration, while lighting up the ruins with warm white light with additional red and orange “burning fire” light spots inside, resurrecting the old memories of the war time.
The central element of the concept developed was the projector system located along the perimeter of the mill ruins, projected the black and white images of World War II on the facades of the building supplemented by relevant audio sequences. The dramatic atmosphere creates a strong emotional experience and immerses the visitor in the sights and sounds of the most critical battle of World War II.
