. ​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.

From a Co-mmune House to Co-living

In the apartment complex CO_LOFT, designed by DNK ag, the industrial heritage of the 1930’s is reinterpreted through the ideas of the 1920’s, when the search for new types of housing was one of the main branches of architecture.

. ​An Expensive Thing to Do

In this issue, we talk to ten architects about how relevant/irrelevant the ideas of reconstruction and redevelopment are.

Julia Tarabarina. DNK ag: “To us, this competition became an opportunity to propose an optimum model of a high-quality and diverse living environment”

The architects Daniel Lorentz, Natalia Sidorova, and Konstantin Khodnev, whose project got shortlisted to make the top twenty of the competition organized by the Agency for Housing Mortgage Lending for the best mass housing project, share about the meaning of this competition, the perfect populated area, and the conditions necessary for achieving this ideal in a micro-development situation.

Lilya Aronova. ​Cultural Code

Trying to put together the mosaic of historical and newly-built units of the Sytin Printing House complex, the architects of DNK ag came up with their own lexical paradigm, some sort of a cultural code, based on the subtle play of images and associations.
