Constructivist Moskow

The capital of Russia has been the location of several projects involving our collaborators on topics related to modern architecture and avant-garde’s heritage, starting from artistic commissions to the ogino:knauss collective. TSR members collaborated to the communication and to the realisation of an art event  for the EU Funded Moskonstruct project. Here we developed a specific competence on the constructivist heritage and the issues of its preservation (2009-10) during the EU  project Moksonstrukt, and curated communication and web design for the successive RKM – Save Urban Heritage EU CIUDAD project (2011-12), including the design of a tour guide of Moscow constructivist architecture. This gave us finally the opportunity to realize an episode of the documentary series Re:centering Periphery.
