Creative credo: A fine project can be introduced in a single line.

“Asadov’s architecture is complex, tense, rebellious, not without reason ten years ago he was made “our chief deconstructivist”. It was very Russian deconstructivism – soft, lyrical, romantic. Everything was being destroyed anyway, so a few broken planes over an old building were enough to make the metaphor clear. Those were the buildups and constructions that brought to Asadov great fame, and the greatest work of Moscow architecture of 1990’s is the office building on Nizhny Krasnoselsky.
Asadov went further then and started designing curved, glass and iron truly futuristic objects, adding up to his informal regalias another one – “hi-tech pioneer”. But few of them were constructed (bridges over Moscow Ring Road, control cabin over the Third Ring), and recently built MERCEDES centre on Vologodsky prospect is an absolute clear European hi-tech without particular deconstructions. Today Asadov is the head of the huge studio in “Mosproekt”, is managing about 50 large objects, as to constructing – a few large objects in Moscow and outside… (from article “Mister DeConstructor”, “Shtab-kvartira”, November, 2004)

Alla Pavlikova. The Faraday Cage

The project of the boutique apartment complex in the 1st Truzhenikov Lane is the architects’ attempt to squeeze a considerable volume into a tiny spot of land, at the same time making it look graceful and respectable. What came to their rescue was metal, stone, and curvilinear glass.

​Big Little Victory

In a small-sized school located in Domodedovo in Moscow metropolitan area, ASADOV_ architects did a skillful job of tackling the constraints presented by the modest budget and strict spatial limitations – they designed sunlit classrooms, comfortable lounges, and even a multi-height atrium with an amphitheater, which became the center of school life.
