The heritage of Moscow 1980 Summer Olympics was shot by Russian photographer Anastasia Tsayder for her project “Olympics”. Olympic buildings, mostly designed in 1975-1978, acted as a manifestation of prosperity and power of the Soviet State, Anastasia Tsayder writes on her portfolio. The remnants of Moscow Olympics serve as an example of what may happen to sport venues over time. Certain locations are still used as intended, some were adapted for new functions, some are left half abandoned. Many buildings did not blend into city structure, initially conceived to be messengers from the future they now look like aliens from the past, the photographer concludes.

Architectural Festival “Green City” was held in the Altay Mountains (Russia) in early August. Participants built architectural objects from materials that can be found at the scene. According to organizers, this is one of the principles of eco-architecture. The aim of the festival was to create a model architecture that is able to blend with the environment.

Our colleague [Dmitry Kobsev](http://kobsev.livejournal.com/), who visited architectural festival, said metkere.com, that he was impressed by impractical objects, like The Temple of Wind or The City of Flowers. “This is a bare idea, a sort of concept, not a claim for housing”, – said Dmitry Kobsev.
