Studio report

Who is designing Moscow today? What role have design and architecture played since the collapse of the USSR?
The Design theme focuses on understanding the physical transformations that Moscow has undergone since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Who is actually designing the city today and what role have design and architecture played during the past two decades of political and social transition? The theme takes a very broad definition of design as its base – the intention to change or enhance a space by adding value to it. The idea is to scrutinize a number of new and changed spaces and create a so-called “Eclectic Atlas of Moscow” that catalogues the capital’s transformation in the past two decades.
