Favourites and Outsiders

  • Andrei Bokov Russian Academy of Architecture and Construction Sciences


Two articles by A. Bokov are bound by the common narrative. The author reviews present-day relationships between architecture, construction, urban studies and management. The author expresses deep concern over the trends launched in the period of Khrushchev’s reforms. Starting from the 1960s, architects have been gradually losing their mission of the bearer of the coherent view of the developing city. Developers pursue their own narrow and not always legal interests, while imposing on the architect the role of an obedient executor.
