Julia Tarabarina. ​Analysis and Synthesis

The project of the housing complex Krasin, designed for the historical center of St. Petersburg, and situated in a very obliging place next to the Mining University designed by Voronikhin, yet bordering on an industrial area became the result of a thorough analysis of the specifics of historical construction on the Vasilyevsky Island, and a subsequent synthesis with avoidance of direct stylization, yet forming a recognizable silhouette, resonant with the old town.

Julia Tarabarina. ​The Flying One

Expected to become an analogue of Moscows Skolkovo, the project of the High Park campus at Saint Petersburgs ITMO University, designed by Studio 44, mesmerizes us with its sheer scale and the passion that the architects poured into it. Its core the academic center is interpreted as an avant-garde composition inspired by Piazza del Campo with a bell tower; the park is reminiscent of the rays of the main streets of Saint Petersburg, and, if watched from a birds-eye view, the whole complex looks like a motherboard with at least four processors on it. The design of the academic building even displays a few features of a sports arena. The project has a lot of meanings and allusions about it; all of them are united by plastique energy that the hadron collider itself could be jealous of.
