Last year I was involved in two jobs. One was academic — I was working as an assistant professor and researcher. I was also working in Giancarlo Mazzanti’s studio, a firm that goes beyond thinking, only in a building, but wants to produce a greater urban and social impact through architecture in difficult national areas.

One of the results of their work is this video:

Before Strelka I studied at the Samara State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering, but I always looked for possibilities to learn something new. That is why I had an internship at GDS Architects in Brussels and participated in a competition on the design concept for residential eco-buildings for the Brussels municipality.

After graduating a worked for a while as an architect, but soon enough I realized the existence of a huge gap between the way architecture is taught at school and the way it is practiced. Maybe it was some basic «survival instinct». So I left architecture for 5 years and went into business.

Before Strelka I studied at MArkhI. When Strelka opened, I didn’t know anything about it. But my friends from MArkhI did. They said that we should definitely come as Rem Koolhaas himself would be there. Then we were volunteers at the summer programme. I was a volunteer at one of the first workshops held at Strelka by Studio Banana, I got acquainted with them and went to work for them in Madrid.
