On the initiative of MAPS, with funding from the World Monuments Fund, and with the help of the Moscow Schusev Architecture Museum, SAVE Europe’s Heritage (SEH) are arriving in Moscow this week for a five day survey and fact finding mission to write a report on the of the city’s built heritage. Drawing on their 10 years of experience, SEH are able to make an important and constructive contribution to the debate at this critical time for Moscow’s built heritage. The report will be published in the autumn and outline the chief dangers to Moscow’s architectural heritage and propose ways of dealing with them. Over the last five years SAVE’s hard hitting and constructive reports have provided enlightening advice at crucial times for architectural heritage the world over. The SAVE team includes: Marcus Binney, President of SAVE, Adam Wilkinson, Secretary of SAVE, Calder Loth, an American architectural historian and preservation specialist, Franziska Bollerey, Professor of Urb! an Studies at Delft University, Axel Fohl, Curator at the State Office for Historic Monuments, Germany. To arrange interviews with any of the SAVE team or for any information on the above events please called Clem Cecil on [Please contact poster by PM]
Through these contacts, we are working to give Russian preservationists and Muscovites a greater international voice. We believe that every effort should be made to preserve certain buildings. We invite experts to advise on more sustainable approaches to the historic built environment. Through such work MAPS hopes to convince the Moscow Government, developers and architects that the unchecked demolition of old Moscow is not in the city’s long-term interest.
