Going, Going, Gone!

The housing complex Composers Residences has been built in accordance with the project by Sergey Skuratov, who won the international competition back in 2011. It all began from the image search and cutting off all spare, and then implementing the recognizable Skuratov architecture. It all ended, however, in tearing down the buildings of the Schlichterman factory, whose conservation was stipulated by all the appropriate agencies prior to approving Skuratovs project. This story seems to be educational and important for understanding the history of all the eleven years, during which the complex was designed and built.

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.

In March, two buildings of the Capital Towers complex were built up to a 300-meter elevation mark. In this issue, we are speaking to the creator of Moscows cutting-edge skyscrapers: about heights and proportions, technologies and economics, laconicism and beauty of superslim houses, and about the boldest architectural proposal of recent years the Le Corbusier Tower above the Tsentrosoyuz building.

The project of Samara Arena Park, proposed by Sergey Skuratov, scored second place in the competition. The project is essentially based on experimenting with typology of residential buildings and gallery/corridor-type city blocks combined with towers as well as on sensitive response to the context and the urge to turn the complex into a full-fledged urban space providing a wide range of functions and experiences.
​In the Space of Pobedy Park

In the project of a housing complex designed by Sergey Skuratov, which is now being built near the park of the Poklonnaya Hill, a multifunctional stylobate is turned into a compound city space with intriguing access slopes that also take on the role of mini-plazas. The architecture of the residential buildings responds to the proximity of the Pobedy Park, on the one hand, dissolving in the air, and, on the other hand, supporting the memorial complex rhythmically and color-wise.

In this issue, we are interviewing Sergey Skuratov about the results of the competition for the building in the center of the residential complex, on which the architect has been working since 2006. We are examining the project that never did win, making an attempt to study the case in detail.

The house that Sergey Skuratov designed in Nikolovorobinsky Alley is thought out down to the last detail. It adapts three historical facades, interprets a feeling of a complex city, is composed of many layers, and catches plenty of sunlight, from sunrises to sunsets. The architect himself believes that the main role of this house is creating a background for another nearby project of his, Art House in the Tessinsky Alley.

In his new project, Sergey Skuratov explores the theme of balancing out the static and the dynamic components of his architecture, continues experimenting with brick façades, tries new elements of housing construction, but, most importantly, solves the ever-so numerous town planning issues of a large fragment of Moscows urban environment.
