Just two decades after perestroika, architecture in Russia has moved away from its initial eclecticism and found its own way forward. The new desire for space finds expression in extensive planning in the field of interior design, among other areas. The reasons for thi: are obvious. Firstly, money is no object for powerful building owners on the lookout for originality in their private sphere when commissioning work from established bureaus. Secondly, the young generation has especially gained much public attention for its strikingly new interior design. These architectonic statements go hand in hand with a clear theoretical position.
