Architecture of Evanescence

On the Vernadskogo Avenue, next to the metro station, appeared a high-rise landmark that transformed the entire area: designed by UNK Project, the “Academic” business center uncovered, in the form of its architecture, the meanings of the local place names.

A highway bridge as a place for recreation and contemplation; a network of pedestrian arteries and capillaries full of greenery, also meant for locomotion and communication, and a network of “smart devices” meant to help people – all of this is combined in the project called “Linked City”.

How does a school that has no room for boredom look like? This question was answered by UNK project in their project (no pun intended) of the educational complex to be built in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, which got a name of “Neskuchnaya Shkola” (“Boredom-free School”).
