Alexandra Smagina is from Samara. She graduated from Samara State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering. At Strelka, she studied the institution of the church and tried to explain its problematic and the potential avenues of development for modern Russia. In her project she came to the conclusion that apart from everything else, the Russian Orthodox Church is also a powerful independent developer that influences the city’s landscape significantly. Now Alexandra is a volunteer in Iceland.
