Reinventing and rebuilding hidden heritage
Daria and the Peredelkino team are reinventing a unique writers' residence near Moscow, Russia, built in the Soviet Union to host famous Russian writers, including Nobel prize winner Boris Pasternak. Once a legendary ‘safe space’ for prominent thinkers, the estate fell to decay in the 2000s, but was reopened in 2021 as the largest cross-cultural residence in Russia.
