The urban plans the narrow Moscow streets had to be turned into huge prospects

During the Moving Buildings on Tverskaya Street tour the audience will be going to the 1930s. According to Stalin's urban plans the narrow Moscow streets had to be turned into huge prospects. To preserve historical buildings, they were moved to new places. Viewers will be able to find out all secrets of relocation technology and discover hidden courtyards. They will get to know how houses moved, could people be inside, and who is Emmanuel Handel.

Online tour is guided by Ayrat Bagautdinov, architectural historian, author of the Moscow Through the Eyes of an Engineer project.

This video has subtitles in Russian and English. Use the "Subtitles" function on YouTube.

Moscow Through the Eyes of an Engineer is an educational project offering tours, lectures, and master classes for children. The team chose a special approach: it allows participants to see the city from an engineer's point of view and learn to understand it's architecture.
