About Aristarkhova’s text “Welcoming Architecture of Buromoscow:”
The flight of people on swings surprises Irina Aristarkhova as she crosses central Moscow’s Triumfalnaya Square. She seizes this experience of encountering airborne Moscovites on oversized swings to elaborate on the architecture of hospitality developed by the Buromoscow architectural studio and its significance in contemporary Russia, positing that their “spatial production and enactment of individual and communal experiences of hospitality” in public space not only welcomes, but interpellates a new Russian body (politic) into being.
