The procedure for awarding the prize of the Union of Moscow Architects "Golden Section" this year has significantly changed, as we have recently written about. Previously, the structure of this respected architectural award resembled a complex nesting doll, where different lists were put into each other for two years, with a gradual selection to the final list of worthy ones. Now the system has been deprived of the matryoshka hierarchy, and it began to look more like something layered-democratic. Summarizing, we can say that the pseudo-scientific hierarchy of choosing first the nominees, and then among them the laureates, has been replaced by the “freeman” of the information age, pluralism and humanism.
Freedom, however, does not exclude intrigue - preliminary results were announced today. These are the results of three votes: the jury of the "Review Council", which includes all the winners of the past "sections", the press jury and an Internet voting open for everyone, albeit a nominal one, on the award website. The results of the latter have not been announced separately, they were only included in the summary list with the name “Public Recognition short-list” and somehow influenced it. A total of 820 people took part in the nominal voting; 30 out of 76 members of the "Council", 15 journalists, and more than seven hundred people - via the Internet. The results of anonymous voting were taken into account only in those cases when the work gained a “half-pass” score.
To avoid getting bored on the day of the award, the published list is specially mixed and the sequence of listing does not mean absolutely anything - first of all, it is not related to the number of votes for each participant (they will be announced only at the ceremony). That is, so far we have only the names of those works that have scored a passing and semi-passing score, as they would say at the University entrance exam. So, today we have: a long, 22 names, list of favorites of the "Inspection Council", selected by the number of votes cast; 11 entries selected by a vote of journalists, and a list of 17 items, made up of these two combined in an online vote. All who are included in these lists are called diploma winners of the "section" - accordingly, they will be given diplomas at the awarding ceremony.
Then the winners of the show will be selected from the same diploma winners, they will be given larger diplomas and the lists will be shorter: the winners of the “Review Council” and “Public Recognition” are expected to 10 each, the press jury will issue only 2 final awards. Nothing is known about the main prize awarded by the Prize Committee (E. Ass, A. Skokan, S. Skuratov, V. Plotkin, N. Yavein): it should become the main surprise on April 19.
Thus, we have before us deliberately preliminary results, also a kind of intermediate round, with a touch of informality. Lists do not seriously depend on each other, and besides, in two weeks everything can change significantly, well, just to complete surprise. That's the plot. However, it would be a shame not to comment on these results at all.
Firstly, the journalistic list is the smallest and therefore the most precise and clear. It is significant that it does not contain a single book from the competition section of "publications", there is no conceptual project of Totan Kuzembaev with a rope bridge in Venice, and in general it contains more buildings than projects. One gets the impression that journalists are so tired of analyzing concepts, interiors and other informal things that they are sincerely happy with the material, real buildings.
The press list is by no means the most important for the event, on the contrary, it is very, very additional here. However, it is smaller than the others, which, coupled with the weight of the objects that got there, makes it similar (only outwardly!) To the list of favorites.There is no escape from this sensation, although in fact, as mentioned above, in fact, everything is even completely different and classified.
Having three lists, coinciding in places with each other, it is difficult to refrain from comparing them and thus getting a list of possible favorites. Although, again, this will be only an assumption, in fact, everything is classified. If you put together the things mentioned in the three lists, one of which is consolidated, but keeps the Internet voting "hidden", you get a shorter, more intelligible and clear list of eight objects, two projects and six buildings. Which most closely matches the press list.
There are two projects here, very different, almost polar: the bright and gigantic ski track of Mikhail Khazanov and the semi-conceptual dovecote of Vladimir Mogunov. Two newly completed buildings by Sergei Kiselev, the colorful "Avangard" and the expensive Moscow-Berlin "Hermitage Plaza", and two buildings by Vera Butko and Anton Nadtochiy, a private house "in Sosny", all consisting of broken contours of concrete "sleeves" and an elegant children's boarding school. The remaining quarter was "divided" by Nikolai Lyzlov's house on Strastnoye and Dmitry Alexandrov's "Perforator", which hung at the exhibition near and imperceptibly, very distantly, similar to each other - in scale, location in the city center and even the sloping form of facades hanging over the street sidewalk.
They can be followed by those participants who were included in two lists - "Council" and "Confessions". All things here are dissimilar: the "virtual" Kuzembaev bridge, the magnificent facade of the second version of "Tupolev-Plaza" by Dmitry Barkhin, the new Mayakovskaya lobby, stylized as the old one, and books. Further interesting are those who were not included in any list, although they could - first of all, this is the reconstruction of the building of the Union of Architects of Russia by Alexander Asadov, who rebuilt the three-story mansion of the 19th century, covering it with a curved copper visor. House of SAR is not mentioned even once, which is a bit unexpected.
As already mentioned, the results are by no means final; they are, in general, not results at all. The "golden ratio" is so mysterious … we will wait for the results. In addition, the preliminary lists have one additional purpose - to hint to future laureates so that they do not forget to come for the awards on April 19: so, gentlemen listed below, would you be so kind to attend the gala event!
