The URBAN section presents several materials about the development of the Soviet urban planning school and some of their brightest representatives. One by one they are leaving us. Last year, during the autumn starfall, Lezhava, an urban planner from the bright NER Group (New Element of Settlement), passed away. NER is experiencing a new wave of interest among the architectural youth, as is evidenced by the popularity of the exhibition in the MUAR “Ruina”. Publishing his stories about his war‑time childhood, PB says good‑bye to Ilya Georgievich, one of our most brilliant and popular authors.
