|An artist's view of the proposed new town of Yuznyi, Russia.|
The economic prosperity in Russia has brought great pressure on Moscow and St. Petersburg as the urban population is rapidly growing with workers coming from rural areas for business opportunities. New towns are being planned near the urban centers, and one utilizing the successful European formats established before the era of Stalin, is Yuznyi. All the buildings will be evocative of the traditional styles.

The next posting of The Devoted Classicist will present the interesting history of the area and an example of a new American-influenced single-family detached house. All the images are the work of the Pittsburgh firm Urban Design Associates which has developed the Concept Plan for the new town of Yuznyi.
