Moscow. Our special correspondent Alexey Nevsky. On Friday, the Architect’s and Developer’s Breakfast was held within the framework of ARCH Moscow NEXT in Central House of Artists located on Krymsky Val Street, Moscow.

A traditional club of professional architects was opened by the chief architect of Russia’s capital city, Sergey Kuznetsov. The topic brought up for discussion was dedicated to the renovation program in Moscow. Architects Sergey Skuratov, Yuri Borisov, and others, as well as director at the Urban Economics Institute Nadezhda Kosareva took part in the discussion. Their opinions on the issue of renovation were different.

So, Sergey Kuznetsov, suggested not to discuss political and legal aspects of the renovation, but instead to elaborate on the issues of density, height and comfort. Architect Sergey Skuratov expressed his opinion on the issues of environment and a poor readiness for solving the problems of the renovation. In particular, he noted a lack of awareness among the architects about the work of the Moscow General Planning Institute about the city’s economy.

Sergey Kuznetsov stressed that Moscow had chances both for a success and a failure of that program, because much had to be done for the solution of such grandiose task.
