Giacomo Cantoni-architect, co-founder of the Russian-Italian Bureau Grace shared his impressions about the reconstruction of the former Intourist buildin

"We thought about a special approach to the reconstruction of a building of such complexity and the preservation of various elements. We reactivated the public places that remained in the memory of Tashkent residents. We have completely preserved the facade of the theater. The rest of the facade was covered with a colored translucent fiberglass mesh. This material is innovative, which allows you to maintain the continuity of the entire reconstruction. Finally, we used a classic panel with geometric patterns that we found in various examples of traditional architecture."
