Saint-Petersburg Master Plan

  • Tatyana Valovich


This interview went on the air almost five years ago. The architect Vladimir Pavlov answered the questions posed by Tatyana Valovich, a reporter of Radio Svoboda. Vladimir Pavlov was one of those young energetic architects who came to Irkutsk in the beginning of 1960s to create the Irkutsk school of architecture and to bring up the first generation of professional architects on this land. Living and working already in Saint Petersburg, in this interview he shared his thoughts about the bureaucratic system, the high-density development, drawbacks of the master plan and urban planning in the “northern capital” and the necessity to work out a consolidated plan of the Leningrad Region and Saint Petersburg. Most of his words could be equally related to Irkutsk.
