Muscovite, Alexander Alyaev, became the winner of the Second Russian Youth Architectural Biennale. His winning work is now exhibited in one of the most famous galleries in Germany, VM.RU reports.
Alexander’s work, together with the projects of other winners of the Biennale, is in the oldest independent architectural gallery in Europe, AEDES, in Berlin.
“For me, this is not the first foreign exhibition. For example, together with my colleagues, I already participated in a foreign competition, where we took second place with the project for the reconstruction of shepherd’s houses in the mountains in southern Italy,” says Alexander.
Alexander has his own places of inspiration in Moscow. He is attracted by the Gorky Park, the Pokrovka, and the area near the Proletarskaya metro station. It gives the architect ideas on how to aesthetize the heritage of the Soviet Union.
