In 1994 there begins a new stage in the architect’s career – he accepts the proposal for the committee chairman of state control, use and protection of monuments post. Years of this work were devoted to development and putting into effect the programs of saving and development of historic centre of St. Petersburg, restoration of the city’s architectural heritage.

In 2003 N. Yavein leaves the post and focuses entirely on his architectural practice. Yet, he remains to be a notable social figure: he gives course of lectures in St. Petersburg Academy of Fine Arts; he is a board member of Union of Architects, Russian Federation, and its department in St. Petersburg. He takes part in work of a few scientific and social companies on issues of urban planning and saving of the city’s cultural heritage. In 2001 N.

Julia Tarabarina. ​Theater Town

The second stage of Boris Eifman Dance Academy is constructed around a theater building, its space “spinning” around the architectural scenery of the “little town” of the atrium. The result looks like a Russian Matryoshka doll: a theater within a city, and then a little town within a theater, all of this forming a dance school – a very effective way of organizing the space.

A “string” park designed for the first alluvial waterfront of the Vasilyevsky Island is full of modern functions, at the same time demonstrating a regular structure and a reference to the classic gardens of Saint Petersburg. The project won in the competition and is due to be implemented.

Julia Tarabarina. ​Nikita Yavein: “We work on the architecture of streams”

The Venice Biennale lasts for half a year, until the 25th of November, so I don’t think it’s too late to speak about the Russian pavilion as well. We chose two of its expositions for closer examination, and in this issue, we are talking to (as it turned out) an honorary railroad man, Nikita Yavein.

Elena Petukhova. ​The Story of Apraksin Dvor

The Saint Petersburg Council for Cultural Heritage Sites has approved of the concept of renovating “Apraksin Dvor” proposed by “Studio 44”. Based on the stage-by-stage tactics of working with the numerous owners of the buildings situated on this land site, the concept provides for a lot of new functions and a pedestrian space with a driving entrance from the underground.
