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. ​Stairway to Heaven

​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.

. ​Heaven Gets Closer

In their “Sportpark” project in Moscow’s Tushino, ASADOV architects joined together swimming pools, a skating rink, gyms, and tennis courts under a single “sky” of a giant pergola made from glued wooden structures, creating a convincing image of eco architecture.

. ​An Outgoing Introvert

Designing and building in Moscow area’s Lyublino a fitness club called La Salute (which translates as “health” from the Italian), ASADOV architects did make the life of this area healthier by bringing designer architecture and new useful functions into the standard environment. The dramatic tectonics of the building empathize its sporty intentions.
