This is the top award in this category, and it is especially valuable to us as it means that the project has been highly appreciated by the professional community.

Another festival award won by the workshop was a Silver Badge and a Diploma in the category Buildings — Multiapartment Residential Houses. It has been awarded to the Russky Dom residential complex (at 5 Baskov lane).

The latter building has also received a diploma for development of traditions in modern architecture from the Russian Academy of Arts.

Another diploma of the Zodchestvo Festival has been awarded to [AG1] the short film “An Approch to Enhancement of Dostoevsky Museum” created by the Arkhitekturnye Izlishestva Telegram channel team.
