Metro as an art
The attitude to the metro in Moscow is special: many stations of the Moscow subway are well-knowned as monuments of architecture, famous artists and sculptors took part in the work on them many years ago. In order to ensure that the architectural appearance of the new stations corresponds to a high level of Moscow metro, Moskomarkhitektura conducts project competitions, in which not only Russian, but also international architectural bureaus take part. Alyona Panfilova-Korsakova, chief architect of Blank Architects, told in an interview with Stroitelnaya Gazeta about how such competitions are held and how the Moscow metro construction experience differs from the European one.
