RESTORATION OF WOODEN CHURCHES AND HOUSES
"I was lucky to begin my career with the restoration of wooden architectural monuments in the Russian North. This gave me profound knowledge and an in-depth understanding of the building traditions of our ancestors. By studying and restoring architectural monuments you communicate with the masters of the past who created these works, learn from them, follow the centuries-old tradition and become a living carrier of a great culture which is several centuries old. Restoring our past, we not only preserve our cultural heritage, but also support the future development of our tradition in the nowadays conditions."
