Architectural Forum

One event being held for the first time this year is the Architectural Forum where authoritative bodies, developers and architects will discuss architectural trends and what formats of modern housing will be in demand over the next few years. The forum will end with case studies as part of a joint project with arch: speech.

Perfect Home

A key feature of the Trend Show, the brand new Perfect Home project will bring a fully-built 400 sqm house onsite at MosBuild curated by Alexey Dorozhkin, Editor-in-Chief of ELLE Decoration magazine. The house will be designed by architect Boris Uborevich-Borovsky, while the interior will be the work of 10 leading Russian designers using materials and products from exhibiting companies.

Virtual Reality Space by Diana Balashova

Also part of the Trend Show, interior designer and MosBuild ambassador Diana Balashova will be curating the Virtual Reality Space using materials on from exhibitors. She says of the project: “It’ll offer a futuristic virtual 3D interior model where visitors can put on a VR-helmet to find themselves inside a virtual reality space and can walk through the rooms and explore the details. The visitors can become my co-designers: the technology allows them to change the materials themselves from a wide choice of materials presented at the exhibition.”

SPACE 2.0

One major part of the Innovation in Construction Area will be the presentation of the first stage of SPACE 2.0, a large-scale project by industrial designer Vladimir Pirozhkov.
