Studio report

The projects within the studio Preservation cover the time span of the last 20 years and address the issues of architectural preservation.
The understanding of architectural preservation has changed irrevocably over the past few decades. What was once exclusively the terrain of historians and specialists has now become an intertwining puzzle linking economics, sociology and politics with cultural heritage. Preservation today is something we foresee and try to accommodate in advance, rather than look at purely retrospectively. Russia, with its complex mix of historical and cultural legacies, is the case study for this theme. The research surveys the changing history of preservation theory and then seeks to look at preservation in an altogether new light and redefine some of the stereotypes that surround it.
