A Dialogue Between Elena Bagina and Elena Grigoryeva about Irkutsk, Pavlov and the 1960s
The energy of the Khrushchev Thaw was reflected in the works by Vladimir Azarievich Pavlov, whose unique buildings constructed in Irkutsk are unrivaled throughout the world. In 1981 his name was in the list of the 50 greatest modern architects of the world. At the same time, the master’s creative activity is undervalued. Pavlov’s buildings in Irkutsk are in poor condition. They need to be restored and preserved as the cultural heritage.
