House #1 Project for international architectural exhibition ÂŤARCHMOSCOW 2010Âť - architects: Novikov A. with Hi!Arch (Gumankov V., Manuilova E.) Panel house is a symbol of its time and architectural epoch. It still forms a face of the Russian cities. We analyze it with no connection to a city and place regarding it as a single monument of a panelized architecture. By marking panels with red and leaving the white gaps we emphasize the structural identity of a panelized architecture in order to return to a cradle of a soviet modernism. We remind of the ideology of that architecture to rethink our attitude towards these buildings and to give them new lives. Red panelized building. Red is a symbol of upmarket brick house-building. Red is beautiful (rus.).
