Central House of Architects
Central House of Architects is the residence of the Union of Soviet Architects. The architectural ensemble of the Central House of Architect consists of three complexes of different styles and different time, yet harmonically related to each other.
The I complex is a mansion of late XIX century built in pseudo-Gothic style by architect A.E. Erihson in 1896.
The II complex is the central part of the CHA.
In years 1938-41 the mansion of XIX century was transferred to the Union of Architects. And a new building with an auditorium for 450 seats and a restaurant for 180 seats was attached to it. It was designed by the architects A.K. Burov, A.V. Vlasov, M.I. Merzhanov and the artist V.A. Favorsky.
The III complex with conference hall for 150 people and exhibition hall was designed by the architects B.I. Tkhor, R.I. Semerdzhiev, I. Schepetilnikova and constructed by M. Lyakhovsky in 1980.
