Historical quarter = Adapting quarter

Alexey Ginzburg

Refurbishing a historical quarter. Does it mean freezing it in time or helping it to evolve naturally?

Is what we regard as the structure of the historical city an organism with a rate of evolution - neither evident nor constant?

A dialogue with Constructivist and Modernist concerns to the same historical quarter helps to define new relationship with the past and clarify the symbiosis of different cultural layers.

A careful balance of conservation and new development adds value and brings life to the urban environment.
