Architects’ Board in Academic District improves Yekaterinburg’s appeal, Professor Kosintsev says

Once an international Architects’ Board has been set up in Academic District of Yekaterinburg, the entire city’s appeal will become much stronger. Our city has a few schools of architectural thought, which is a very good thing. However, attracting some foreign experts will definitely add some color to the city’s architecture,’ Alexander Kosintsev, who has a PhD in Economics and is a Professor at Ural State University of Economics, told UrBC.

For now, an Architects’ District Council has been set up in Academic District that has well-reputed Russian and foreign architects on the board.

‘If Yekaterinburg is appealing in terms of architecture, this will serve as a factor in the decision to host the international exhibition EXPO 2020 here. Of course, there will be a number of criteria at play, but the architecture of a city that can potentially host such a large-scale event is also crucial,’ he pointed out.
