Model of Moscow


Today we look at model of Moscow inside the exhibition hall of "House on Brestskaya", center for architecture and construction.
The installation of wooden model of the center of the city (12m x 12 m (40'x40') was started in 1968 by Nikita Khruschov's (Soviet leader during 1953-1964)  order and finished in 1986. The model changes together with changes in the city, so it shows the actual view of the city.

The model was a total surprise for me. I went there to see the exhibition "World through the eyes of architects". Double pleasure.
