On May 14th at the Schusev Moscow Museum of Architecture marked the opening of “Russian architecture. The Modern Era.” exhibition. IntiLED is honoured to support such substantial and significant project, tied with company’s field of work. Every day IntiLED team is working with architectural forms and styles, lighting buildings and shaping their unique night image. “Lighting is a link between architecture and how we perceive it. We see shape and materials indirectly, through light.” IntiLED has implemented an exhibition lighting project using EDGE series luminaires, the IntiLINE series projectors and the novelties RAY model range.
The exhibition, created with participation of the project ideologists - Andrei and Nikita Asadov, presents materials and interviews collected during a large-scale study of Russian architecture. The last 30 years have marked their milestones in history: the names of architects, who have given their projects new levels of professional quality; events and projects that influenced further development of the national school; and buildings that have become unique display of talent and circumstance.
“Russian Architecture. The Modern era” which includes not only the exhibition, but also the publishing of the book, marked the goal to survey the most important stages of domestic architecture development and will try to conceptualize the work made. Year 1989 was adopted as the conventional point of reference - the moment of creation of the first private architectural workshops at Moscow Union of Architects. The main feature of the project is methodology of the study. To compile a list of the most significant events for the development of domestic architecture and buildings, a survey with more than 300 respondents was conducted. It included leading architects and authors of Russia's most iconic objects, as well as the most authoritative experts from related fields.
It is hard to judge, analyze and make conclusions in a short run. “Russian architecture. The Modern Era.” exhibition is another step to grasping the history, an endeavor to make an intermediary summary.
