The nominees worked on such iconic architectural monuments for the city as the Physics Pavilion at VDNH, the Rutkovsky Mansion, the Belvedere grotto in the Bauman Garden and the People’s Observatory in Gorky Park. The jury will determine the winners in October.

The winners will also be determined in the nominations “For the best restoration project and/or the best project of adaptation to modern use”, “For the best organization of repair and restoration work” and “For research work and/or scientific and methodological guidance”. And Muscovites will choose their favorite by voting in the project “Active citizen“.
