Julia Tarabarina. A Factorys Path

Last week, the new center for constructivist studies Zotov hosted its first exhibition named 1922. Constructivism. The Inception. The idea of creating this center belongs to Sergey Tchoban, while the project of the nearest houses and adjusting the building of the bread factory for the new museum function was done by the architect in collaboration with his colleagues from SPEECH. We decided that such a complex project should be examined in its entirety and this is how we came up with this long-read about constructivism on Presnya, conservation, innovation, multilayered approach, and hope.

Julia Tarabarina. ​The Slabs of Bagration

The construction of a new skyscraper designed by SPEECH within the complex of Moscow City has been announced. A keen observer may see in it: Moscow high-rises, Chicago architecture, Malevich architecton, and an attempt of deconstruction of the integral image of the Moscow skyscraper a technique that has been actively employed by the architects in their recent works.

The Beams of Energy Effectiveness

On August 22, Berlin saw an official opening of the new HQ of the energy company Vattenfall, the office complex named EDGE. One of its buildings is Germanys biggest wood hybrid building. The term means that its supporting frame is made of glued timber, but in certain places wood cooperates with metal, reinforced concrete and fiberglass.

Julia Tarabarina. Inside Out: Pavilions of Eternity

The reconstruction of the warehouses of the Spit of Nizhny Novgorod they opened in the beginning of June as concert and exhibition halls became, without exaggeration, the event of the year, both in the field of culture and architecture. Their story seems to us to be extremely attention-worthy from the point of view of discovering, researching, and protecting this monument to engineering thought of the 19th century. At the same time, the solution proposed by Sergey Tchoban on how to adjust and how to expose these structures is as relevant as it is bold and unconventional on the edge of temporary, timeless, and eternal.
