Urban renewal in Krapivna/Russia

2008-2009, concept, design


The provincial town Krapivna, one of Lev Tolstoy‘s work places, has a 18th century urban structure. In the project I analyzed the conservation area and suggested solutions to very different problems: historic buildings are substantially at risk, public buildings stand empty and the infrastructure needs to be completely renewed.

I further pursued the project in my Bachelor Thesis, focusing on the question if solutions in urban development in Germany can be similarly used in Russia (see Theory + Writing).
