How to make a sustainable living with an eye towards sustainability in architecture.
The design studio of a Moscow architect is using the same principles to help build a modern, green and safe environment.SOVIET architecture has been an influential force in modernism in Russia, particularly during the cold war, and has played an important role in shaping the architecture of cities.
In the 21st century, however, this heritage has been lost.
Today, the Russian government has taken a different approach to sustainable architecture and is actively promoting sustainable buildings.
In a bid to revitalise the architectural landscape, in November 2016 the Ministry of Environment and Sustainability signed an agreement with a local organisation, Sustainable Architecture of Russia (SAVO), to build a new sustainable architecture school.
The institute is planning a series of courses in sustainable architecture to help students understand the concept and to create a sustainable future for their communities.
According to the SAVO website, the institute will teach the concepts of sustainability and architecture, which will then be shared with the local community.
In a bid for sustainability in its design, the new school is looking to create an environment that will provide for both health and safety.
“We have always felt that the design and building of buildings is a critical aspect of sustainability,” said Oleg Nadezhda, the director of SAVO.
“We are currently considering different strategies to create sustainable architecture for the future, but we are confident that we will be able to create these structures in a sustainable way.”
In an attempt to make the new architecture school more sustainable, SAVO is looking for volunteers to design the structures.
“The aim is to create structures that will contribute to the sustainability of the city in the long run,” Nadezda said.
The Institute of Sustainable Architecture at the State Institute of Urban Planning of the Russian Federation (SIEPU) is a research institute and a project of the Ministry for Environment and Sustainable Development (METR).
SIEPU is one of several agencies that work with the government on sustainable development in Russia.
The building is part of the Institute of the Environment and Environment Design (IAED) which aims to improve sustainable design and development in the country.
“SIEU has already done a good job of creating an environment of green and sustainable buildings, and we hope this new institute will contribute towards this goal,” said Alexey Vysotsky, the head of IAEED.
The SAVO building is one part of a project to create “a new sustainable urban architecture school in the city of St Petersburg”, according to Nadeza.
“Our work has already been carried out in a number of projects, including in the Russian cities of St. Petersburg and St Petersburg-Vostochny.
It is important that we continue this work here,” Nadesha said.
