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.
