Architect Karina Bunyatova is from Moscow. She studied in the Design research theme with Stefano Boeri, and her work focused on the Moscow-City business development, comparing it with other Central Business Districts in different cities. Karina tracked the development of the new business district as Moscow has transformed over the past two decades. She investigated how it started out as the plan of Western investors and specialists, but gradually became Russianised as the city became wealthier and more and more successful Russian businesses appeared. Karina currently works as a freelance architect specialising in public spaces.
