Tsarinnyi I.V. - Pedestal in the city monumental sculpture pp. 22-30


Abstract: The subject of this article is a sculptural pedestal in the urban environment. The harmonious interaction of the pedestal and sculpture is an important plastic compositional task. The article gives a short excursion into the history of the topic, analyzes specific examples and gives recommendations in solving compositional problems related to the pedestal in the urban environment. The purpose of the work: a historical excursion of the origin of the pedestal, and analysis of specific existing works of sculpture. The results of the study can be applied in the practical activities of sculptors, architects and urban planners in the situation of designing a sculptural form in the urban environment. The work employs methods of comparison and analysis of historical samples for compositional construction, as well as observation and specification. It can be concluded that the pedestal is the most important compositional element that not only affects the perception of sculpture, but also is an inseparable semantic component of one whole. Monument, any plastic spatial form in the urban environment is expressed clearly and convincingly when interpreted in a clear artistic, harmonious language, when it reaches the synthesis of architecture, sculpture and pedestal.
Safonova E.V. - УTextileФ plasticity in postmodern architecture pp. 31-38


Abstract: The subject of this research is the innovations in the area of architectural morphogenesis of the last decade of XX – beginning of the XXI centuries. The object of this research of interaction between the architecture, design, and other types of visual and plastic arts, which found reflection in the so-called “textile” plasticity of postmodern architecture. The article examines the principle of “textile” plasticity as a morphogenic method, a new strategy of architecture with the curvilinear, flexible geometry of folded structure. The article explores the rich internal connections of the diverse types of art, which play an irreplaceable role in emergence of a new artistic language of architecture. Methodology of the research is defined by analysis of the ideas of Western architects-experimentalists, Western and Russian theoreticians of postmodern architecture, deconstructivism, and nonlinear architecture. A conclusion is made that the interaction between arts and technologies activates the search for new basis of the architectural creativity, particularly the “textile” plasticity in architecture.  The considered architectural projects and ideas force have a new perspective on the interaction and interinfluence of the various types of art on the basis of modern computer technologies.
