Research Forum South Room, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 0RN
Speakers: Professor Jean-Louis Cohen (The Institute of Fine Arts, New York) and Maria Fedorchenko (Architectural Association, London)
This panel discussion will consider Moscow as a space in transition during the first half of the twentieth century (1905-1935) and the post-Soviet period (1989 and after). By focussing on the subject of urban planning and architecture of the city during the periods of social and political change, the panel will address the topics of the early skyscraper projects, patterns of urban Americanizm, the city and commerce, and the revised architecture and planning practices in post-Soviet Moscow. The panel will explore the form and context of architectural practices during the time of ideological change, whilst highlighting patterns of rupture and continuity in Russian architectural history and its complex relationship with the West.
Open to all, free admission but due to limited space advance booking is required.
