the Future

Plans for the Future

My complex approach to research and design of territorial and urban development models is composed by five fundamental disciplines – Sociology, Engineering and Ecology, Transport, Zoning, Economics and Management – and is called ‘Urban anatomy’. I intend to implement this approach to the strategies of urban and territorial development in Russia and other countries. The Earth population is increasing by 93.5 million every year which makes modernization a problem of extreme concern to every major city. To an urban planner the situation is both a challenge and fresh opportunity.
