Project: Energy as Progress (Understanding the Relationship between Energy and Russia's Development) (2011)

research theme: Energy
Directors: Reinier de Graaf

Architect Pavel Geichenko is from Ufa. He studied in the Energy research theme with Reinier de Graaf, focusing on the relationship between energy and the overall development of Russia throughout the country’s history. His project took a sweeping look at the past 100 years of Russia, from the early Soviet drive under Lenin to electrify the country, through the rapid industrialisation of the Stalin years, the Soviet collapse, and right up to the present day, when President Dmitry Medvedev recently called for Russia to move away from its “humiliating” dependence on natural resources. Pavel currently works at the Architectural Bureau A4 in Ufa.
