Gorky Park, 1920s-1930s: A Vanished Planet
A lost planet is not a cause for melancholy. The many pavilions of the All-Russian Agricultural and Handicraft Exhibition - erected in what is now Gorky Park – only stood for three months in 1923. However, they were constructed by the leading architects of the time: Shchusev, Zholtovsky and Melnikov. Learn how the impact of this temporary project still remains, and how their legacy continues to inspire Russian architects today.
Boris Pasternak is the chief architect of the Center of Historical and Urban Planning Researchers, a member of the Scientific and Methodological Council for Cultural Heritage of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, a state expert for the historical and cultural expertise.
Admission is free.
Venue: Shigeru Ban pavilion in Gorky Park, 9, Krymsky Val
