Russian Avant

It seems Now he will become a museum. This is largely, if not all, merit Gordeeva, who acted as a savior of Soviet architecture. 'I've already spent $ 4 million on the house Melnikov – Gordeev said. – I really want to preserve it properly, but the government has no money for it. I like how things are in America, where the protection of monuments has the support of private institutions. This is a good example for Russia, where many lives rich people. " Last year, Gordeev bought on the outskirts of Moscow factory workers' club 'Petrel' is another notable work Melnikov.

Gordeev founded the fund 'Russian Avant-Garde', which protects the architectural innovations, publishes books on Russian architecture as well as working for the protection and restoration of monuments of the Soviet era. He recently acquired the archives of architects and Ivan Leonidov Alexei Shchusev, which is scheduled to open to researchers. Gordeev, introduced in the Russian parliament a bill on which the architectural monuments of the city should remove the ads. (Recently the project was approved by the upper House of Parliament and is now enrolled at the bottom.) Gordeev engaged in a number of projects that may seem, that in his hands is the greatest legacy of the XX century modernism. While defenders of antiquity, especially fearing Gordeeva now laud him, privately, they express a certain anxiety. On the question of how he became interested in architecture, Gordeev said, rather vaguely. When in early 1990 the borders were opened to the West, says Gordeev, he spent two years traveling in Europe, where, in his own words, fell in love with Gothic churches.
