review – russia now «

02.Sep.2011 » reviews

Currently the only available publication on this subject, Russia Now presents 37 examples of contemporary Russian architecture and product design, all of which can more than hold their own on the international stage. The new Russia has long since adopted as its own the former Soviet Union‘s ambitious desire to be a leading player in the cre­ative disciplines – with one difference: The designs and con­struction processes coming out of Russia now reflect those of the country‘s former ideological foe.

Lebedev Studio, Evgenij Korneev etc.
