Minister of Construction, Housing and Utilities Mikhail Menn invited a young graduate of Vologda’s architecture and construction university Elena Rakova to work in the operating group on urban development of Russian cities.
As the Construction.ru was told by the press-service of the youth forum “Tavrida” in the Crimea, the young architect presented her project on the arrangement of public transportation stops. Mikhail Menn found her ideas so authentic and sensible that he offered her to join the operating group at the ministry.
In particular, the girl suggested major changes in the appearance of the public transportation stops, built in the Soviet period, equipping them with mobile libraries and decorating in street-art style based on the works of Russian literature classics – Pushkin, Lermontov, Sholokhov, Bulgakov.
And in Volgograd, which is to become a venue for the World Cup 2018 qualifiers, the stops may be decorated with the portraits of famous footballers and the World Cup emblem.
