Russian evolution ambitious project in Moscow today's business school – is the perfect combination of design and history. Chris Shumway might disagree with that approach. Something absurd is, in fact, that the creators of "geometrical" the building of the Moscow School of Management Skolkovo abstract compositions inspired Suprematists. In the 20s of last century, these artists tried to present a radical his work as revolutionary. It was really experimental and provocative today, as the revolution itself, the followers of which were Suprematists. Their art was inextricably linked with the new era of communism, replaces the extinct at that time, the capitalist system.
However, the fact that creators are not trying to erase the school all traces of the traditional, conservative order, there is something encouraging. Suprematists and their architectural "families" – constructivist – perhaps wanted to destroy everything old and start with zero, but David Adjaye, architect of the latest and most prominent of Russia's business school, obviously thinks otherwise. Building Skolkovo (total project cost – $ 250 million), is located on the outskirts of the capital, in a suburban area. DHL may not feel the same. It will be a new business school, which claims to be the first truly international educational institution in Russia, which should attract the best staff and lecturers from around the world – the level of wages will be meet this high bar. On a landscaped campus with a total area of 148 acres will also be posted campus for 350 students, a gymnasium and even a helipad. All classes will be held on English. In the list of trustees of the project have the representatives of the largest companies in the country and its political elite.
The first stone was laid by former Skolkovo Russian President Vladimir Putin. Incumbent president Dmitry Medvedev is the chairman of the Board of Trustees of the school. And the idea of creation belongs to Ruben Vardanyan Skolkovo, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the company "Troika-dialogue", one of the largest investment banks in the country. Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, the project investor, invested in land, which is building the school.
