The Moscow River Age explores the human-river relationship and presents a timeline of stories between 1919 and 2119. The narrative is polyphonic. Many voices come together to reveal how the river and the people who live near it influence each other in multiple ways, and how deeply their lives are intertwined.

MOSCOW RIVER FRIENDS Architects and artists, journalists and archeologists, environmentalists and physicists, actors and businessmen, politicians and local historians, and thousands of other people who care about the past, present and future of Moscow and its main river, are all friends of the Moscow river. In 2018, architects Yury Grigoryan, Anna Kamyshan, Taisia Osipova and geographer Glafira Parinos created an informal society, The Friends of the Moscow River, in the hope that it would help people feel connected to the rivercand responsible for it.
