CURATOR’S
STATEMENT

“Young architects play a very insignificant role in shaping the looks of Russian cities at present. The market conditions are such that the youth are forced to go into, mostly, private countryside or interior projects, having no voting rights in the process of the actual architectural design. It is even more unjust if we consider how rapidly Russian regions are developing. We suggest that the young architects should answer the following question on their own: what should an esthetically attractive, sustainable, and comfortable city environment be like, where they would like live? We hope to get a very wide range of opinions on the subject, while a support on the part of the Ministry of Construction of Russia and the Government of the Republic of Tatarstan will let the young architects be heard at the very high level”.

VENUE

The Biennale will take place in the most advanced and the youngest city of Russia – Innopolis (Republic of Tatarstan) designed by young architects.

THE FIRST YOUTH ARCHITECTURAL BIENNALE IN RUSSIA WILL TAKE PLACE ON OCTOBER 12 TO 14 IN THE CITY OF INNOPOLIS, TATARSTAN. THE BIENNALE CONSISTS OF TWO PARTS: A BUSINESS PROGRAM, AND AN EXHIBITION OF 30 YOUNG ARCHITECTS’ DESIGNS SELECTED BY AN INTERNATIONAL JURY. THE BEST DESIGNS WILL BE AWARDED, AND THE EXHIBITION OF THE BIENNALE WILL BE DEMONSTRATED AT OTHER VENUES IN KAZAN, MOSCOW, AND OTHER CITIES OF RUSSIA.

The Biennale was established by the Ministry of Construction and Housing of the Russian Federation.

  • Director, General ProducerALEXEI BOKOVProducing agency BOKOVFACTORY
  • Co-directorNATALIA FISHMANAssistant to the President of the Republic of Tatarstan
  • Official partner:Agency for strategic development “CENTER”

Tatarstan has deserved the right to be the first venue for holding the youth architectural biennale. Imagine that five years later, the new celebrated professionals will be able to say that it was here where they got the first impulse for their success. New public spaces have been created by efforts of mostly young specialists in Tatarstan for three years already. We know how to trust them and to support them in their efforts to implement their designs. Such investments in the new professional community return to us as unique cutting-edge projects that our region can be proud of.
