Julia Tarabarina. ​Consistency of the Method

Marking its 35th anniversary, Reserve Union (officially named OOO TPO Reserve in Russia) used the venue of the Arch Moscow convention to showcase its hitherto unannounced projects. We asked Vladimir Plotkin a few questions, and we are showing a few pictures without any captions yet.

Julia Tarabarina. Vladimir Plotkin: Our profession is complex, vulnerable, and sometimes defenseless against criticism

As part of the editorial project devoted to the high-rise and high-density construction that Moscow is seeing in recent years, we spoke to the leading architect of CU Reserve Vladimir Plotkin, the author of many grand-scale and high-profile buildings of this city. We spoke about an architects role and his tasks in the mega-construction process, about the drive of the megalopolis, about the strong sides of mixed and multifunctional construction, and about the methods of organizing big forms.

Julia Tarabarina. ​Semantic Shift

The high-end residential complex STORY, situated near the Avtozavodskaya metro station and the former ZIL factory, is delicately inscribed in the contrastive context, while its shape, which combines a regular grid and a stunning shift of the main facade, seems to respond to the dramatic history of the place, at the same time, however, allowing for multiple interpretations.

Julia Tarabarina. ​Celestial Tectonics

Three towers on a podium over the Ramenka River are the new dominant elements on the edge of a Soviet microdistrict. Their scale is quite modern: the height is 176 m almost a skyscraper; the facades are made of glass and steel. Their graceful proportions are emphasized by a strict white grid, and the volumetric composition picks up the diagonal grid of coordinates that was once outlined in the southwest of Moscow by the architects of the 1970s and 1980s.

Julia Tarabarina. ​The City of the Sun

Jointly designed by Sergey Tchoban and Vladimir Plotkin, the VTB Arena Park complex can arguably be considered the perfect experiment on solving the centuries-old controversy between traditional architecture and modernism. The framework of the design code, combined with the creative character of the plastique-based dialogue between the buildings, formed an all-but-perfect fragment of the city fabric.
