Main topics of the forum
Specifics of the agenda
Artyom ZdunovChairman of the Government of the Republic of Dagestan
It is fundamentally important now to express and find a national character in future development, which would be understandable to people and where all world architectural trends would be reflected. Another important issue is the work on the legal field regarding the regulation of land relations in Dagestan, an inventory of land plots. If we do not understand this issue, it will be difficult to work. And the most important thing is to form master plans for our cities and towns. The pilot for us in this issue is Derbent, where the competition for the creation of a master plan concept has just ended.

Representatives of architectural, development, consulting, management companies, field-specific departments and administrative entities, public organizations, media and students of field-specific universities.
