She will appear in the evening ...
24.04.2012 00:00Each city has its charm, its own face, making it unique among the tens of thousands of cities scattered in a wide variety of climatic conditions. Some cities, like Paris or Venice, act openly and take their fans by a storm, while others creep unnoticed to the heart. Sometimes it's hard to say why a town stayed in the memory, although you have been there a couple of hours of travel, but from time to time its narrow streets float in the memory, or the light of the lantern falling on a lone table in a cafe already closed.
For more than two millennia Sukhum’s appearance repeatedly changed - starting from lying on the seabed and still unknown to us Dioscuria till drowning in green resort town, which it became in the last decades of the Soviet empire. Even if one of my friends - archaeologists told me that under the land and asphalt in front of a massive building of a regional party, at the seaside there are hidden ruins of an ancient temple. Perhaps it is a legend, but it blows with antiquity and sea travels.
Abkhazia is independent almost twenty years, albeit not very noticeable, but the country is standing on its feet, and it's time to think closely about the concept of the Abkhaz capital, to set priorities for its development and to block architectural tastelessness, gradually pervading urban space. Responsibility for the capital lies on us, its current residents - in everyday life is often forgotten that we are the creators of the history and the surrounding environment. The uniqueness of our native city, expressiveness of its streets, buildings and lawns, and the depth of its cultural life depends just on us.
The city, like a human face has mimicry- it is even more unique than its architectural appearance, for the sum of the greater number of parts, including the elusive. Among them there are our smiles and grimaces, our intonation and local jargon, the ability to behave, especially gaits and habits, the attitude to guests of the capital and many of other things.
Now it is possible to add to the refined look of Sukhum a sculptural architectural flavor that will make rich the urban environment not only, but also a human one. Ends Russian Drama Theater repairs are coming to the end. and Arkhip Labakhua offers an original version of theatrical design of the facade.
Above the to the theater’s entrance it is supposed to make a window in which in the evening the figure of an actress will be displayed, and directly opposite the entrance a male figure of a lover of about 165 cm in height in the sidewalk tile is being mounted!
