- Architectural heritage in post-Soviet Russia
Reconstruction of historical buildings
This article is devoted to the topic of architectural heritage in the modern world, in particular in post-Soviet Russia. Several landmark historical architectural recreations, mostly destroyed temple structures, are considered. An attempt is made to analyze the “loud” Russian recreations to identify the specifics of each of them, mainly through the prism of new ideology and restoration axiology. The implementation of these recreations turned out to be a definite challenge to the established school and practice of scientific restoration in the country. The new priorities and goals often contradicted the existing professional experience and in essence represent a different paradigm in relation to the historical and architectural heritage than in the Soviet period. The issues of the influence of these heritage reconstructions on the revival of new Russian church building, on its style and iconography are also touched upon.
