LADA LAND

Sited in Moscow, Russia, my building strives to critique the consumerist behaviour in exporting products by melting abandoned Lada Riva Cars, a Soviet manufacturing success, and re-casting them into bicycles. The cars would form an urban landscape that is opened to public interaction; their parts converted into building materials for motel accommodation pods that frame the landscape.
