The NAYADA Company visited the opening of the exhibition of its friend and participant of the project “12 Architects. Offices” Totan Kuzembayev. The presentation of the solo exhibition Totan was held on September 27 in the Enfilade of A.V. Schusev State Museum of Architecture.
Each room of the museum is presented as a separate installation, illustrating the diverse and multi-faceted work of the universal author. Many of them were executed by Totan himself. Each visitor could touch these works, uniting art and architecture. The atmosphere of the event enabled visitors to immerse themselves fully in a special world created by Totan.
