Civil engineer Alexei Fedorovich Bubyr' (1876-1919)
was an outstanding master of the Russian Art Nouveau, author of many civil and industrial buildings in St.Petersburg, Tallinn, and Sochi, as well as a series of competitive projects. He worked together with Nikolay Vasilyev and Lev Ilyin.
The site is devoted to the buildings created by the architect in St.Petersburg. Here you can look at photos of each house, read a brief summary about it as well as some subjective comments.
To go to the information on each building, use the internal links "Buildings" or "Map".
The site has been designed using some graphics by A. Bubyr' and N. Vasilyev.
Photos in the "Buildings" section by A. Mamlyga, A. Smirnov, V. and Yu. Tezin.
Photos in the "Literature" section have been borrowed from the same sources as the texts.
