Moscow Boom: Architectural Transformation of the Largest European Capital
You are cordially invited to a MAPS round table at 11am on November 19th as part of the ‘Culture Plus’ Forum:
Chairs: Marina Khrustaleva, Chair, Moscow Architecture Preservation Society, and Adam Wilkinson, Secretary, SAVE Europe’s Heritage.
The round table is linked with the soon to be published report "Moscow Heritage: Crisis Point" prepared jointly by MAPS and SAVE. The report has been written to draw federal and municipal authorities and society's attention to the mass disappearance of Moscow's built heritage.
City planning and preservation experts will join architects, investors, historians and journalists and all those not indifferent to Moscow's future at the event.
Among the themes up for discussion will be:
- Possible scenarios for the future of Moscow's architectural landscape
- Ways to motivate investors and the government to preserve historical buildings
- World experience; mistakes and achievements
- Industrial conversions; the potential of industrial buildings
- Moscow's hotel boom
The ‘Culture Plus’ Forum takes place Nov 17-19 in the ArtPlay design centre.
