2007 — 2007

The presented project of football stadium of TsSKA («Moscomproekt-4», Bokov А.В, Bush D.V.) combines two functions - sports and commercial. An entrance to stadium is through Hodynka, from the back party, and from the underground Polezhaevskaja. From different directions, especially from the south, the stadium is surrounded by especially protected territory of a birchwood. The project offers small cutting down of a grove with its subsequent indemnification. The new stadium is calculated on 30 thousand places, with parking place on 1300 cars. The project also planned towers with hotel and offices. J.M.Luzhkov has supported the project of stadium on capacity, but with conditions: a simultaneous conclusion of underground storehouses of fuel and use of the released runway for increase in a parking on which he has suggested to develop the separate decision. He has also rejected an investment component of a complex which «mismatches concepts of a modern sports complex». Mayor has named the architectural decision «silly and primitive», vertical forms has suggested to smooth.

The second project, stadium " Spartak ", is supposed to arrange at the free territory of Tushin air station which can without difficulties provide a complex with necessary number of parking places. The entrance to stadium is now overloaded, but the station of underground " Strogino " will be soon constructed and by 2009 also the station " Mitino ". Two variants of stadium were offered - the project of the same architects designed 2 years ago, as TsSKA with two greater domes, and a new one, "wavy". Both of the project unite two stadiums: the closed arena and the open stadium on 30 thousand spectators. Thus there are two variants of overlapping of stadiums, under a right angle and in parallel, but in both cases there are problems with evacuation and, according to A.Kuzmin, most likely stadiums should be moved apart a little. Present representatives of club Spartak have stated a wish in favour of the first, the old  project. Among performances anxieties on reliability of a construction and its lightness  have sounded. Having listened up all opinions, the town governor made a decision to reconsider conformity to norms once again and called all to leave from the outlined tendency to overload theconstructions. It was suggested to make not less than 10 thousand parking places, plus to revive the project of station of the underground which was developed for this place long time ago.

After sports the theme was replaced on church, and the project of creation of the Cathedral of Christmas of Holy Virgin («Moskomproekt-2» arch. Obolenskij A.N.)  was offered on consideration at the territory of a female Zachatievskiy monastery. The history of this place is those, there were some cathedrals, since wooden and finishing construction of Kazakov which has been taken down in 1917. Now the monastery wants to revive a cathedral, but not to recreate Kazakov’s, executed in a pseudo-Gothic, and to construct new, on similarity of churches of 16-17 centuries, with five bulbous chapters, and a little bit higher, than its Kazakov’s predecessor. Such decision has caused many inconsistent points of view, since that so towering building in general an attribute of arrogance and under the law only regeneration of a monument here is possible , instead of erection of a high-altitude temple with caution for old centuries, up to the thesis that « as soon as all Moscow grows upwards should grow the churches ». There was a question why it is impossible to recreate a former temple? It has appeared, that, in general, it is possible: There are ancient bases which can be closed, and it is possible to leave inside of a cathedral, but how has told the sovereign acting on session more space for acceptance of parishioners is necessary for a monastery. Luzhkov has confirmed the new project of a temple which besides is approved by the Patriarch, but has reduced its altitude.

Following point of issue became the project of reconstruction of quay Luzhnetskoj on which construction of a multipurpose complex with offices is supposed, hotels, apartments and the trading areas of a total area of 450 thousand square meters.
From the public the discontent has caused the construction of offices which for a long time, on expression Alexey Klimenko, « it is time to show red light in the city centre » and system of transport ways which in the project does not develop in any way. But Jury Luzhkov has been most indignant, having told, that « the main architect has admitted impossible volumes of construction on so small site of the ground which besides under the General plan goes as a public zone », and has named these actions « a pursuit of benefit ». The main thing and while the unique decision of this question became restriction of construction something.

The last considered project became the hotel in parkway Nikitskiy, 6/20, architect M.V.Posohina, rejected on the previous discussion because of big amount of floors. Instead of 9 floors, now she presented 7 floor building, leaving by a corner to Arbat, executed in a manner of eclecticism. The public has supported still smaller amount of floors and regeneration once stood here « Solovinogo houses ». Luzhkov's decision was encouraging, - « we already have one disgrace on Arbat - the bank house, it is impossible to admit similar ». Therefore the top mark of the house became 5th  floor. Against the architectural decision the town governor has nothing to object.

Headlines now
Vladimir Plotkin: “Our profession is complex, vulnerable, and sometimes defenseless against...
As part of the editorial project devoted to the high-rise and high-density construction that Moscow is seeing in recent years, we spoke to the leading architect of CU Reserve Vladimir Plotkin, the author of many grand-scale – and high-profile – buildings of this city. We spoke about an architect’s role and his tasks in the mega-construction process, about the drive of the megalopolis, about the strong sides of mixed and multifunctional construction, and about the methods of organizing big forms.
Upping the Stakes
The concept of a housing complex in Samara from T+T Architects: a new landmark in the cityscape, view of the Zhiguli Mountains, and VR technologies.
City in the Stream
The books by Genplan Institute of Moscow, published for the Institute’s 70th anniversary and for the coinciding exhibition, are the most amazing three-volume edition that I ever saw: the books are totally different, yet packed in one box. This, on the other hand, is justified by the specifics of each of the volumes, the diversity of approaches to processing information used in them, and the complexity of the material as such: town planning is a multifaceted science, bordering on art.
Stop the [special operetion]!
The collective letter Russian architects was published here the 26.02.2022. Now, 04.03.2022, it's text is edited according the new law of the Russian Federation. All the signatures, more than 6800, are deleted, as well as weblinks. But we coserved the edited text for the history.
​Shape of the Winery
In this article, we are telling you more about the development of the shape and the implementation of the “Skalisty Bereg” (“Rocky Shore”) winery, designed by Alexander Balabin and his company “Severin-Project” in the Krasnodar Territory, and one of the finalists of WAF 2021.
​An Architectural Reality Show
Roman Leonidov, the well-known architect of luxury countryside residences, about which Archi.ru repeatedly wrote, launched a new online project called “Build YOUR House” on his YouTube channel.
​Buyan and the Court Quarter
The news about cancellation of the Tuchkov Buyan park has been stirring the minds of people of St. Petersburg for a week already. In the absence of any verified specific information, we discussed the situation with the architects of the park and the Court Quarter: Nikita Yavein and Evgeny Gerasimov.
​The Possibility of Flight
The project of the airport, which ASADOV Architects developed for the city of Tobolsk, and which won in the architectural competition, was not implemented. However, it is interesting as an example of designing an airport building of a very small scale, where the main challenge is the optimal organization of space and infrastructure without compromising the imagery component.
​The Wavelength
Built in the town of Pushkino in the Moscow area, the “Turgeneva 13” housing complex, while fitting in with the surrounding context, differs from it with the rhythmic austerity of its dual composition, a slight wave of the façade, and the color design, in which one can see two images, winter and summer, both “growing” from the specifics of the place.
​A Shell by the Sea
Designing the Sports Palace that will determine the development of the entire northern part of Derbent, ASADOV Architects turned to the architectural legacy of Dagestan, local lore, and ancient layers of history.
​Christmas Skyscrapers
Karen Saprichyan is wishing everyone a merry Christmas, presenting a series of letter-shaped skyscrapers. The architect has long since been working on this theme, and has calendars of various years in stock. His latest development is a group of towers designed for the city of NEOM, which will be built in Saudi Arabia.
​Parade Order
The three brick blocks of the “River Park” housing complex gaze at the water with their terraces. Each block forms a backdrop and two wings, while the residents-only yards turn into “stages” perceived from the river. The landscaped embankment, accessible to all the city people, complements the hierarchy of private, semi-private and public city life that is formed here.
Pompidou Inside Out
Renzo Piano and his GES-2 have already been compared to Ridolfo Aristotele Fioravanti and his Cathedral of the Assumption. And for a good reason: GES-2 also stuns you with its grace and loftiness, but ultimately turns out to be the richest collection of recognizable motifs from an early masterpiece by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, the George Pompidou Center in Paris. These motifs are fused into the grid of Shukhov-esque structures, painted white, and they create a dialogue between 1910, 1971, and 2021, built on references (not devoid of a poster-like quality) to the main masterpiece. The basilica-shaped space of the former power station is taken apart virtually just like the museum, in accordance with the concept by Teresa Mavica.
​Next to Lidval and Nobel
The housing complex designed by Anatoly Stolyarchuk in Neishlotsky Alley: tactful change of scale, tribute to the memory of the place, Finnish additions to the functional typology – specifically, saunas in the apartments – and plans for receiving a BREEAM certificate.
​And stabbed it with a knife
The leader of Coop Himmelb(l)au, Wolf D. Prix, presented three projects that he is currently doing in Russia: a complex in Sevastopol, Crimea, which, as it turned out, a western architect could build bypassing the sanctions, because this is a cultural project; a museum and theater center in Kemerovo, and the “SKA Arena”, which is built in the stead of the destroyed Sports and Concert Complex in St. Petersburg – during the presentation the latter was symbolized by a round cake that the architect eventually cut.
​The Thin Matter
The house named “Medny 3.14” (“Copper 3.14”) is composed of two textures, each of which resembles in its own way some kind of precious fabric, and of three units, each of which is oriented towards one cardinal point. The architecture of the house absorbs the nuances of the context, summing them up and turning them into a single rhythmic structure. In this article, we are examining the new, just-completed, house designed by Sergey Skuratov in Donskaya Street.
​Super Pergola
The new business center built in Moscow’s district of Presnya in the 1st Zemelny Lane is all about technology and sustainability. Its streamlined shapes and white facade grid are combined with a new version of vertical greenery: the green of wild grapes, placed at a distance from the facade, instead of arguing with the “pergola” grid, sets it off by contrast.
​Lightness of Being
Blooming Sakura, a campfire party, kids splashing in a swimming pool – no, these are not pictures from a vacation, but everyday life going on in the yards of Kiev’s housing complex “Fayna Town”. In this issue, we are examining how the utopia designed by the architects is wired, and what they did to make it a reality.
​A Triangular Folded Structure
The project of the new terminal of the Muraviev-Amursky airport in Blagoveshchensk offers architecture based on a modular form – endowed with a special imagery, it becomes the basis both for the carrying structures of the building and the plastique of the facade, at the same time reverberating in the interior design.
​The Breath of the East
Designing a residential complex for Tashkent, GENPRO is turning to traditional architecture and modern trends, aiming at emotionality and efficiency: the panjar window lattices and mishrabias are neighboring on vertical greenery and parametric ornaments, while the theme buildings do on a cotton alley and an oriental bazaar.
​The Openwork XX-Construction Set
The yard of the Architecture Museum on Moscow’s Vozdvizhenka hosts an installation by DNK ag. It is timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the company, and was originally presented at Arch Moscow. The art object is expected to stay in the yard of the museum for one year and set a new tradition – a regularly renewed exhibition project called “Modern Architecture in the yard of MUAR”.
The Spinning Vibe
The pavilion designed by Sergey Tchoban for the World EXPO 2020 in Dubai is a bright and integral architectural statement, whose imagery can be traced back to avant-garde graphic experiments by Jacob Chernikhov, but allows for multiple interpretations. The pavilion looks both like a dome temple, a spinning “Planet Russia”, and the head of a matryoshka doll. Still more interestingly, the core of the exposition is a “brain”. In this article, we take a closer look at the interpretations and the subtleties of the implementation.
Tolerant Aesthetics of Terraforming
The World Expo is a gigantic event; it is difficult to give it one definition or cover it at a glance. All the more so – such an ambitious and record-breaking fair as the one that is now open in Dubai despite all the pandemic restrictions. By no means claiming to present an all-rounded review, we are making an attempt to examine Expo 2020, where signs of aesthetic tolerance of a developer project begin to loom behind the imposing-looking “wings” of “star” architects and delights from space exploration.
The Town in the Snuff-box
The new academic building of Cooperation School in Moscow’s Taganka, designed and built by ASADOV Architects, is a compact volume, at the same time filled with functions and impressions. It easily combines classrooms, a theater, a cafeteria, a gym, and a double-height atrium with an open library and an exit to the terrace – virtually everything that you expect to see in a modern school.
​The Northern Versailles
On the bank of the magnificent Vychegda River, in a picturesque location six kilometers away from Syktyvkar, the capital of the Komi republic, the renowned neoclassical architect Mikhail Filippov has designed the town of Yugyd-Choi in the traditional aesthetics inspired by the center of St. Petersburg. The customer Elena Soboleva, the head of the Syktyvkar Housing Construction Fund, sees her mission in making Yugyd-Choi the hallmark of the republic.
​Analysis and Synthesis
The project of the housing complex “Krasin”, designed for the historical center of St. Petersburg, and situated in a very obliging place – next to the Mining University designed by Voronikhin, yet bordering on an industrial area – became the result of a thorough analysis of the specifics of historical construction on the Vasilyevsky Island, and a subsequent synthesis with avoidance of direct stylization, yet forming a recognizable silhouette, resonant with the “old town”.
