Architectural solution for the layout of Recreation Center “Academia” in the Novosibirsk Akademgorodok (Academic Town).  
Andrey Buslaev, Nikolay Vyatkin.
Initial situation.
“Composition of the Akademgorodok trade and community center is linear, the buildings are aligned along the south-west side of Ilyicha St. for almost 800 m. “Expressive juxtaposition of various volumes of buildings that stretch in a picturesque strip, with a broad stripe of the city boulevard – the forest area that includes tower-like residential houses located in a straight line on the opposite side of the boulevard. This ensemble includes the Scientists’ House and the NSU complex – dominating objects that close up the wide green esplanade of the boulevard…
…From the boulevard raised above the area a chain of vibrant buildings included in the central ensemble is seen through tree branches. This group differs from residential houses with its scale and novelty of architectural forms. This difference is especially obvious if we look at the trade center building, which demonstrates the richness of its volumetric composition. Thanks to big glass planes, the building’s visual connection with nature is continued in its interiors. Interpretation of façades unique for each building of the center is determined by the difference in their functions: blind façade of the club section and the large glass pane of the theatre building. Architects who worked on the interior areas succeeded in achieving mutual penetration of outdoor and indoor spaces by masterfully using huge stained-glass panes and panoramic glass panels.” (c) V.
