A Will for Diversity
The main trait of the Europa City residential complex is not its scale, but the experimentality. First of all, the complex is made up of panel buildings: the Series 137 design was specifically redeveloped for this project, and the panel structures rest on a monolithic plinth. Furthermore, Evgeny Gerasimov and Sergei Choban chose to completely conceal the reinforced concrete with a ceramic coating of a very diverse design: there are almost no repetitions in section solutions, but the design is tailored as to arrange the sections under a common cornice.
