The designer from China will ennoble the mostfamous lakes of Kazan Jewel of the Republic of Tatarstan, the system of lakes Kaban, finally found her jeweler. They became the president and chief designer of the "Turenscape" Congress of Yu. The winner of the contest for design and developmentembankments and the shore of the Kaban lake system, Dr. Yu at one of his open lectures in Kazan made amazing statements that in five years from the lakes you can drink water. Also, the Chinese architect recalled that Russia and China have a lot in common. We even have a similar history, Genghis Khan wasyou and we, and Tatars in China, too ... Kongjan Yu Although the existence of both Tatarstan and Kazan, Kongan Yu learned in connection with the very contest, the architect from the Middle Kingdom deeply imbued with the culture and natural wealth of Tatarstan. And not in vain, because the republic is an ancient land, which literally abounds in monuments and objects of cultural heritage. In this connection, the story of Sviyazhsk is noteworthy. Opinion of the Editorial Board: - Sviyazhsk is an island village, washed by the Volga and built by disgraced monks. Sviyazhsk is also famous for its unique wooden church, in which Ivan the Terrible prayed for sins. The Tatars wanted the island village to become a UNESCO heritage site. But, unfortunately, they were denied this. Why? The thing is that in the pursuit of comfort the central road was asphalted, the natural essence of the island was violated. In such a sad way, the Tatars covered not only the road with asphalt, but also the status of UNESCO's cultural heritage for Sviyazhsk. It is unlikely that Kongan Yew heard about this story, but at his open lecture in Kazan, the designer remembered about the poor Chinese girls who were tugging their feet in order to show the belonging of the Chinese women to the urban environment. Thus, "in the pursuit of beauty, the functionality of the leg was lost." Architect Yu, apparently, meant that the urban component should keep pace with the environmental; that natural aesthetics should not yield to tons of concrete, which are now used in Kazan to contain water flows. Let's hope that the master from China will reachsuccess in the correlative pair "ecology - aesthetics", and water from the lake can not only be drunk, but also see in it the treasures lying on the bottom, as the ancient Tatar legend says.
