In 1925, the outstanding German architect Erich Mendelsohn developed the design of the ‘Krasnoye Znamya’ (Red Banner) factory. This innovative project was carried out with the counterstand of some experts with a distortion of the architect's intention. Nevertheless, the unfinished complex occupied one of the key places in the development of the Leningrad avant-garde. The unequal value of various parts of the enterprise gave rise to a number of problems in the process of its re-profiling and restoration. The whole territory, divided between different owners, has lost its put-up integrity. New residential buildings formally correspond to the regime of the development of the regulation zone, but placing them in close proximity to the dominant Power Station violated the scale proportions and reduced its urban planning and semantic significance. The functional filling of the Power Station, restoration and partial reconstruction of the factory buildings, which have largely lost their historical details, require the solution of complex methodological problems.
