Abandoned Museum into School

A few years ago, I came across this beautiful piece of architecture on a trip to Kazbegi, Georgia.

Surrounded by frosty bare trees, this abandoned building shied away from the morning sun for a while; or so it seemed. The snow-top mountains add the perfect backdrop to this time-worn property.

It was a while before I learned this is the Stepantsminda Museum of History.

Upon learning the concept of this competition, I must say I was intrigued. I rummaged through ideas and designs, unimpressed until I found images of the museum in my gallery.

My intent is to convert this museum into a minimal, urban-styled public school, revamping the environment with modern and chic elements.


You are spot on with those mountain backdrop. I feel the mountains would make a overly picturesque conversion no matter how you spin in, and I look forward to that. Did you have any luck finding any interior information? Or do you intend to make things up as you see fit?
