The Concert Hall in the massive Moscow International Business Center (MIBC), commonly known as "Moscow City", is a nine-story building with an area of more than 38,000 sqm. Scheduled for completion in December 2018, the 1576-seat hall will host entertainment events, gala concerts, and forums. Outfitted with the most advanced technical equipment and outstanding modern design, it is slated to become one of the premier concert halls in the world.


The exterior of the Concert Hall will resemble an inlaid clockface around its façade, with a clockwork mechanism, and it will have a unique translucent dome in the form of a clock. The changing time will be indicated by a line of light projected onto the glass façade. The world’s largest 64-meter clock will be installed on the building’s dome and expected to break the Guinness Record. The clock will be visible from all "Moscow City" towers, and from the streets surrounding the Concert Hall.


All the glass elements, including double-glazed windows, tempered glass, heat-strengthened glass, and triplex glass, along with all the digital printing on the glass facade, were produced by Modern Glass company.


For printed visualization of the clock dial on the façade, Modern Glass used Dip-Tech technology – the foremost, complete solution for digital printing on glass. The design was created with Dip-Tech’s Extra Durable S1 (Side One) Series digital ceramic inks in white.
