Magda Cichon: We lived on this for a year and a half

The work done by the curators of the Venice Biennale mostly remains off-screen the numerous industry reporters that come to the event dont seem to write much about it. The backstage of this years biennale is uncovered by Magda Cichon, the managing partner and the chief architect of Blank Architects, who knows firsthand how it all went along.

Lilya Aronova. ​The Connecting Link

Blank Architects have changed the outer image and the inner content of a shopping mall in Moscows area of Otradnoe, turning it into a converging point of the public life of the neighborhood.

Alla Pavlikova. ​Outline of the Market Square

Developed by Blank Architects, the renovation project of the Fifth Avenue shopping center includes rebranding, broadening of the set of functions and services, as well as giving the building a new façade that will reflect the presence of a farmers market inside on the malls top floor.

Lilya Aronova. ​The Rzhevsky Gate
