The special project Tezisy (Abstracts), showcased at Arch Moscow exhibition in Moscows Gostiny Dvor, brought together eight young rock stars of architecture, the headliner being Vladislav Kirpichev, founder of the EDAS school. In this article, we share our impressions of the installations and the perspectives of the new generation of architects.
​Living in a Forest

The apartment complex in Roshchino, designed by GAFA architects, looks very much like a glamping: the residents enjoy the untouched nature of the Karelian isthmus, while having urban amenities and opportunities for social life.
The Shelter of a Digital Wanderer

The apartment hotel that GAFA designed for the central district of Moscow offers its guests living the habitual routine through a new spatial experience, and claims the status of a new landmark as well.

The project of landscaping the territory of the residential complex NOW in Moscows Nagatinskaya Valley goes beyond the limits of its task and looks more like a modern park: with viewing platforms, an embankment, spaces different in their moods, and thought-out scenarios for visitors aged between 0 and 80.
​The Yard Aesthetics

Organizing the yard of a premium-class housing complex, GAFA architects took care not just about the image that matches the projects high status, but also about simple human joys, masterfully overcoming the construction regulations.
Man and the City

Designing this large-scale housing complex, GAFA architects accentuated two types of public spaces: bustling streets with shops and cafes and a totally natural yard, visually separated as much as possible from the city. Making the most out of the contrast, both work together to make the life of the residents of EVER housing complex eventful and diverse.
