Basmanniy Market collapsed on the 23 of january 2006 throught the incorrect building expluatation during decades. This tradegy took away 66 lifes. The site is used as a penalty parking during the last 7 years.






Graduation thesis . Basmanniy Market

Basmanniy Market round in plan was built in a 1972 and collapsed in 2006 . 66 persons died.

Penalty parking occupies the whole site. There is no memorial. It provokes negative atmosphere

High metal walls set bounds of the It causes agressive and depressive environment

Urban surroundings are highly fragmented and diverse. Market zones are poorly organized.

10.12-05.13 . MArkhI . Moscow

The site development research based on the old maps data from 1843 to 2013 was made to understand deeper the urban history of the site. During this period site structure could be characterized as friable and highly fragmented. Gradually the site squared in plan was loosing its boundaries, Basmanniy market built in 1972 formed an undetermined open space. After the market building’s collapse the site boundaries were totally lost . The housing density shortage causes negative spatial environment.

Graduation thesis . Basmanniy Market



1. Penalty parking occupies the whole 2500 sq.m. site in the centre of the city after the dramatic collapse of the Basmanniy Market. There is no memorial at the place of a tradegy, that took away 66 lives. It can be considered as an irrespectful attitude to the citizens. 2. Today the site borders are identified only by the high penalty parking walls. Huge undeveloped territory in the middle of the district provokes a feeling of insecurity. The housing density shortage causes negative spatial environment. The site and the distrcit need more stability. 3. There is a lack of well organized grocery stores in the district. Inhabitants miss the old market. Goals


1. To save the ‘memory of the place’, to commemorate the collapsed Basmanniy Market and human tradegy. 2. To condense the highly fragmented site development, setting the clear site borders. To give more stability to the district. 3. Revive the grocery market function. Proposal To


: the









- This way the collapsed market volume becomes an open shallow space inside the volume of the new market, materializing its memory in the emptiness that it left afterwards. The building of the collapsed market is virtually revived inside the new market building. The memory of the tradegy becomes a part of the new market, forming a new public market square, serving a high variaty of city functions. It becomes a memorial and an important city square in the same time. - New building volume follows the site borders, making it more stable and clear. It helps to condense the highly fragmented low densed district developmet and introduce more comfortable and secure atmosphere. To revive the grocery market function, putting it on the new contemporary level.

Graduation thesis . Basmanniy Market

Adding stability to the very fragmented and diverse district image was one of the main aims of a facade structure. A square is a main element of the poroposed fasade grid - this stable figure itself transfer tranquility and equilibrium to the facade structure. Also fasade was supposed to express honestly quite big building extension - 145 m x 145 m, not immitating smaller volumes. Therefore the facade grid is universal and unified for all the sides of its main structure. But nevertheless it provides a big variety of material use, making each fasade unique and unified in the same time. Each squared metal frame is divided into 4 or 16 parts by the metal casements. Depending on using transparent or solid materials it can be convinient for all the cardinals and functions. The main proposed facade material is a corten steel. It provides a light but strong structure in the same time. Depending on the cardinal of a fasade and the function behind, corten steel frames can be filled with glass - northern facade, corten steel sheets - galleries with the upper light, perforated sheets and grids - southern facade. The total facade extension is nearly 580 m. Therefore such a unified structure is economically profitable. The main structure consists of 2 unified metal load bearing pylons and a unified corten steel squared frame divided into 4 or 16 parts by corten steel casements. Designed only once this pattern is repeated 384 times, reducing prefabrication and design costs. Also each can be changed indepedently

Monastery . Nisida Island

Nisida is a volcanic island of the Flegrean Islands archipelago, in southern Italy. It lies at a very short distance from Cape Posillipo, just north of Naples; it is now connected to the mainland by a stone bridge. The island is almost circular, with a flooded crater forming the bay on the southwest coast. It has a diameter of c. 0.5 km and a highest altitude of 105 m. Our task was to design a monastery for 12 moncs, situated at any part of the island. In the working process i tried to pay a lot of attention to the handmade modeling, since the first step - model in a hand to the more precised tasks. Paper model of the island of 1 : 2000 scale helped me to understand better its topography and relief. I tried to find the most convinient place and orientation for every part of a monastery general organisation through modeling: cells, library, dining room, church. The project key points were: meaning of light (functional lighting / sacral lighting, diffuse / direct lighting), gravity, minimal architecture resources, time and eternity in architecture, interconnection between landscape and architecture, visual focusing. This project and my graduation thesis were made simultaneously, therefore there was a strong lack of time during the working process. Instead of achieving the final drawings, i decided to focus on the modeling search of the main idea.

‘Prosotr’ Bakery Factory reconstruction. . Competition. 1 place

09.2014 - 11.2014 . Moscow. Russia

Winning Competiton proposal. ‘Prostor’ Bakery Factory is one of the examples of the industrial type architecture of modernism still remained in Moscow. Beeing at a very poor condition today because of the cheap and low quilifed materials but still representing strong modernist approach it was proposed to be thought out as a come back to the idealistic skecth made by an architect at the very begining of the project. Modern high quality material usage, delicate attitude to the existing architecture and laconic language of the new one is the base of the project concept.

FOTT women’s apparel store

FOTT Shop was born in 2005 out of FOTT Online Forum – the first Russian online platform for discussing clothes, style, and music. Emerging quickly a new women’s apparel FOTT store is about to open. Harshness and softness at the same time is the main feature of their clothes collections, that was ment to be the base of the concept design - rough materials as rust and rainbow galvanized metal and concrete are used to create delicate and gentle forms and volumes.

The main objective of the project was to simulate the process of gradual, stepwise development of the territory, based on its internal resources to create first of all not a hard wired project, but a flexible system and the algorithm changes.

An important part of our concept is the mobile objects made of all kinds of industrial ry and give the flexibility and variability of the

development of a catalogue of elements remaining in the factoprocesses occurring in the territory.

To emphasize the uniqueness of the place we have built a number of spectacular and little theatrical spaces, presenting a diverse and memorable experience, creating some iconic objects and place markers. We have suggested to concentrate on the intangible changes on the early stages that, in turn, trigger the processes of attracting resources for capital construction.
