Darya Gorelova. ​The Openwork XX-Construction Set

The yard of the Architecture Museum on Moscow’s Vozdvizhenka hosts an installation by DNK ag. It is timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the company, and was originally presented at Arch Moscow. The art object is expected to stay in the yard of the museum for one year and set a new tradition – a regularly renewed exhibition project called “Modern Architecture in the yard of MUAR”.

Julia Tarabarina. ​Asimov’s Dream

A project by DNK ag won in a competition for the science campus of the National Center for Physics and Mathematics in the city of Sarov, conducted by ROSATOM corporation in collaboration with the Moscow State University, Russian Academy of Sciences, and the Kurchatov Institute.

Julia Tarabarina. ​The Inland City

These two buildings standing on the territory of the former Rassvet factory present an example of the architects’ delicate work with the context, form, and, above all, the inner structure of the apartment building that has arguably become a unique one for the modern Moscow. The complex is already known to a certain extent in the professional community. Below we are examining it in detail.

Julia Tarabarina. ​The Infinity Sign

In this issue, we are giving a more detailed coverage of the project that won in the “Gorizont” (“Horizon”) competition devoted to designing a campus situated on the roof of the most noticeable building of Saint Petersburg’s Sevkabel Factory overlooking the river. The landmark shape with a multitude of versions and interpretations is surrounded by a highly developed public space – what more can a modern man ask for?

Angelina Utter. ​DNK ag: “Reconstruction is very much like coming up with a new life”.

In this article, we are speaking to the curators of the reconstruction intensive PRO conducted by the MARCH school of architecture about the relevance of this topic, successful cases of reconstruction, and about the benefits of the approach based on the preservation of the old buildings.
