If there is a city that is emblematic of Russia’s journey from the medieval period, through the Imperial Era, past the Soviet Union to the present day, it is Moscow. The architecture of the Russian capital is like a tapestry – weaving together disparate architectural styles into something greater than the sum of its parts.
Moscow is not just a monument to Russia’s eventful past. Far from it. The city is one of the most fertile for architects, as major new projects are commissioned, constructed or completed seemingly every day. Architecture studios and design houses inhabit Moscow’s every corner, with plenty of international bureaus joining in the architectural activity.
