Lara Kopylova, Julia Tarabarina. ​Hearing the Tune of the Past

The Church of the Beheading of John the Baptist in the park near the Novodevichy Convent was conceived in 2012 in honor of the 200th anniversary of the victory over Napoleon. However, instead of declamatory grandeur and fanfare, the architect Ilia Utkin presented a concentrated and prayerful mood, combined with a respectful attitude of this tent-shaped church, which also includes some elements of architecture of orders. The basement floor hosts a museum of excavations found on the site of the church.

Anatoly Belov. Gostiny Dvor by Lavra

Ilya Utkin chose urban regeneration for the reconstruction project of rough modernist building of Mir cinema built right opposite to Troitse-Sergieva Lavra in 1970. The building will be entirely transformed and become more like a Central Russian bazaar. Though the building will change, the aim is different. It would transform a part of Zagorsk town back into Sergiev Pasad. But the project will not be realized.
