Before Strelka I worked as an architect in a large architecture firm.

I learned about Strelka right after it opened because my schoolmates were planning to apply here.

I thought it was interesting that such a place should appear here, and I thought it was a great opportunity to create something new in Moscow.

Moscow is my home town, I was born here. It’s a very ambiguous city: on the one hand, it has strong energy, it’s developing rapidly; on the other hand, it’s very conservative; that is why it is so interesting.

I hope Strelka will open new horizons that I’ve been missing, and that with that broader knowledge I will be able to take further steps forward.
