48 projects became finalists of the Moscow Architectural Award. A total of 178 applications were submitted to the competition. This was announced by the Chief Architect of Moscow and Chairman of the Prize Expert Council Sergey Kuznetsov.

“We have a record year again this year

number of applicationsFrom which the jury selected 48 projects for the second round. They are very different, and it is good that we have many nominations, because all projects have their own goals and opportunities, and we cannot compare them. I, for example, am in favor of encouraging work with budget objects – of course, they are more modest than commercial ones, but it is really difficult to deal with them, and each original solution that we managed to defend in them is a small victory”, – said Sergey Kuznetsov.

This year, projects are competing in 11 categories, including high-rise complexes, educational facilities, kindergartens, retail and office buildings, houses under the renovation program and others.

Among the contenders for the award there are quite famous Moscow projects. These are the new metro stations “Pykhtino” and “Nagatinsky Zaton”, the museum center of the State Historical Museum near the Novodevichy Convent, a bicycle pedestrian bridge across the Yauza River on the territory of the new scientific and educational cluster of the Bauman Moscow State Technical University and others.

The task of the architectural award is to recognize the masters of their craft working with different projects, as it is this contribution that helps to maintain the quality of all commissioned Moscow facilities at a high level. Thus, in the category “Renovation” four new buildings were selected at once, the authors of which showed original architectural solutions. The same can be said about the designs of schools, kindergartens and other social facilities participating in the competition.

The winners of the award will receive one million rubles each. The awards will be presented by Sergei Sobyanin in June. The finalists can be viewed on the site.
