Research Statement

My field of Interests:

[A] Virtual Architectural Heritage
Virtual heritage has become increasingly important in the conservation, preservation, and interpretation of our cultural history. Many of the world’s treasures are in danger of being lost or destroyed, causing irreparable damage to human understanding and extinction of our natural wonders. Using archived and published texts, maps, photographs, archeological research, and modern aerial photos and natural measurements, with the help of modern computer technologies, we are making 3D reconstructions of architectural monuments. This technology is establishing new ways to explore complex problems and provide solid pathways to real solutions.

[B] History of Indigenous Architecture and Architecture of Frontier Territories in Siberia and North America.
The goal of the research to be conducted is a comparative analysis and finding major trends and peculiarities of the evolution of traditional types of dwellings of the Bering Sea region to reconstruct ancient ethnic connections of people separated by the Pacific Ocean.




Teaching Portfolio

Courses Summary:

[A] Course: A Global History of Architecture
A Global History of Architecture provides a comprehensive tour through the ages, spinning the globe to present the landmark architectural movements that characterized each time period. Spanning from 3,500 b.c.e. to the Classicism and Baroque in Europe, this unique course reminds us that history is not linear and that everything was 'modern architecture' in its day.

[B] Course: History of Modern Architecture
This course will seek to unpack questions of modern architecture, in a chronological examination of the foundational principles and key movements from the late 19th century to the beg-21st century. Students will explore the historical and critical considerations of architects in Europe, the United States, Japan and other international built environments alongside parallel artistic, political and social movements, in order to synthesize a greater theoretical context of the movements that constitute the canon of Modernist architecture.

[C] Course: Native American and Siberian Architecture
Going beyond a traditional survey of buildings, the course offers a broad, clear view into the native people world, revealing a new perspective on the interaction between their buildings and culture. The course focuses on their use of space, their environment, their social mores, and their religious beliefs. This course includes frontier vernacular architecture in Siberia and North America from the 16th to mid-19th centuries.

[D] Course: Architecture Design Studio
One-year foundational design studio course for developing design skills in relation to thematic fields of space, program, technology, context, and form. This course focused on civil design buildings as residential, offices, shopping centers, etc.

I have skills in sciences, which has been proven by national and international awards received.
