ARCH-ARQ: Roman Abramovich and Dasha Zhukova's Art Island Begins to Take Shape in St. Petersburg


The new profile of New Holland Island, the former St. Petersburg military base that art-loving billionaire couple Roman Abramovich and Dasha Zhukova plan to transform into a mini-art metropolis, is beginning to take shape. Last month, Abramovich ended his international search for an architect, settling on the New York-based Work AC's warehouse and landscape-heavy design. Meanwhile, the island has moved forward with a full roster of summer programming: having opened to the public this June for the first time in 300 years, it has already seen over 75,000 visitors, according to the Moscow Time.
