An essay of Strelka graduate Anton Ivanov has been published in the latest issue of the urbanism magazine MONU. The author discusses the neighbourly relations of the centre with its periphery, the new urbanism of Moscow, and the difficulties involved in developing larger territories.

My essay is dedicated to Moscow and its immediate surroundings – the densely populated extension of the megalopolis. I believe this territory to be particularly closely connected to the city and that is why the term «Greater Moscow» is relevant in this context.
