What are the most common issues related to residential development in Holland and Russia? How do they affect the choice of building materials? Does any of it have to do with Russian climate?
Equipped with knowledge of the Russian Avant-garde a group of architects from studio Team Paul de Vroom + Sputnik was challenged by an unconventional Moscow developer to start working on modern housing complexes and residential developments in the midst of a country that was still undergoing the most radical political transformation imaginable. At the threshold of the 21st century, fully educated in the Dutch tradition of housing and planning, they plunged into the adventure of putting theory into practice in the country of their primal fascination: Russia.
