State Museum of Architecture. A.V. Shchuseva presents an exhibition of futuristic projects of the Soviet group NER - “NER: In the footsteps of the city of the future. 1959-1977. The exhibition is dedicated to the collective project of the experimental architectural group NER, which for more than fifteen years has been developing a city-planning model of the city of the future - “A New Element of Settlement”.
The humanization of the urban environment, the city as a space of creative communication between people, the fundamental separation of production space and living space, the rejection of uncontrolled urban growth and the proposal of a settlement system across the country are at the core of the NER group’s projects. The conceptual apparatus of this model eventually became firmly established in the domestic practice of urban planning.
The exposition will introduce the stages of the formation of the NER theory of the city - from the collective student diploma in 1960 to projects published abroad and presented at the XIV Milan Triennial in 1968 and at the Osaka Expo in 1970. In the halls of "Ruins" materials from the personal archives of the NER, recreated layouts, sketches and publications, as well as video and audio testimonies of the participants of the NER project will be shown.

City of the Future ”is the first specialized collection in which the group’s creative heritage is viewed in the context of the Soviet and international architectural discourse of criticism of modernism.
