Nezir GuseynovChairman of the Committee for Architecture and Urban Planning of the Republic of Dagestan
Public spaces now include many functions, from education to entertainment. They must meet the needs of the population they are created for. It is important to design public spaces so that they can show the values of our cities and the republic as a whole. Today, we will talk about the main world trends in formation of public spaces, strategic priorities and principles of integrated territorial development, and much more. And, above all, we are interested in practical tools for the improvement of public spaces.
Khizri AbakarovDeputy of the Russian State Duma
As mayor of the city of Derbent, I worked in conjunction with the head of the Department of Architecture of Dagestan. We were creating public spaces in a new format, and at that time I didn’t expect that they would have such a strong positive effect. We invited to Derbent architect Isa Magomedov, who was then working at the Department of Architecture of Makhachkala City Administration. He realizes many projects, all of them quite successful, and now Derbent is very popular among tourists. It is difficult to overestimate the work of architects and urban planners, I hope all your plans will be realized.
