Saint-Petersburg | 27.06.2007

Like many projects by Yury Avvakumov, “BornHouse” can be called architectural only from a formal point of view.

Audiences must do two things: first they view the art, and then with a certain effort they “dress” each work of architecture, and force themselves to realise that this tube with a spiral inside is not just an exquisite sculpture and a metaphor of birth and the development of a new life, but also a kind of model of a building.
