To live humanly: the architect showed the Russian reality in a new lightPictolic
When traveling abroad, we love to compare "us" and "them", and it is clear that the comparison is almost always not in our favor. Meanwhile, if you look at the situation with optimism, in order to begin to live better, it is necessary not so much. To demonstrate this we decided Russian architect Alexey Novikov, a little embellishment of the domestic hinterland with the help of computer technology.
In his project, Alex used visual method of information presentation "then and now", although in his case we can say otherwise — "is — could be." A little "pricesa" realities of the Russian periphery, senseless and merciless, Novikov gave to understand that in order to live not worse than European neighbours, does not need old Soviet tradition to destroy everything to the ground, and then something to sculpt on the ruins. You can just tidy what you have and get the cute and very cosy towns and villages.
Simple, isn't it? But only the author removed with the help of photoshop ugly chaotic is from the facade of the old mansion.

And again, no radical changes — well maintained yard, no debris, a few simple small architectural forms.

What do you think? Even in a completely hopeless at first glance, the car wash attached to garage cooperative, can look solid, if a little try.
The private sector is a completely separate topic for discussion — then everyone can create well-being on the site belonging to him. Of course, if you want.
Analyzing the work of Alexei Novikov, you can come to the conclusion that in order to live a new life, it is necessary not so much — quality roads and paving, adequate street lighting, cleanliness and the lack of tasteless Amateur. What do you think?
