Their initiative, the expert explained that investors easier to build some new houses, than to engage in the restoration of historical buildings. In place of the demolished objects, he proposes to build a new: “glass and metal”.

Now the city 9 000 monuments of architecture, which are on the account. This figure is growing every day. No one is willing to invest in it money. Business is not interested. You say, “But I like it, I’m from St. Petersburg, I will not let anything break.” Let us so live. And then we budget money will not give. You all will die here without Moscow, without Moscow money

Your project Shukhov will present at the International cultural forum, which will be held in St. Petersburg from 14 to 16 November.
