Professional activities of architect alexander A. Gvozdziovsky

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №3 (83) September 2023

The article is devoted to the professional architectural activities of the architect Alexander A. Gvozdziovsky. Despite his fourteen-year practice in the Far East, the existing publications about the architect contained but scarce information about his education and position at the Construction Department. A comprehensive study was carried out, covering project documents and archival materials (the Russian State Historical Archive, the Russian State Historical Archive of the Far East, the Central State Historical Archive of St. Petersburg), and periodicals of the late 19th - early 20th century (newspapers "Vladivostok" and "Vladivostok Diocese Vedomosti", magazine "Builder"). The scientific novelty of the work lies in the discovery of previously unknown facts about the biography and professional activities of the architect in St. Petersburg and Vladivostok, including information on his academic period, multidimensional activities as regional architect at the Construction Department of the Primorsky Regional Board, and private architectural practice. We performed an architectural and stylistic correlation analysis of architectural objects in St. Petersburg and Vladivostok erected with the participation of or following the architect's designs.

The article is devoted to the history of the architecture of pre-revolutionary Vladivostok and, in particular, its ecclesiastical consistory, the administrative office of the diocese. The publication is largely based on archival material from the Russian State Historical Archive. Specifically, it considers two unrealized designs for the consistory dating back to 1899 and 1910, including the spatial planning of the buildings as appearing in the available drawings and the stylistic treatment proposed by the architects for the Spiritual Department. Correlation is established between the composition of the 1910 design and the 1912 actual building. The scientific novelty of this contribution consists in the discovery and analysis of previously unknown drawings relating to Vladivostok’s ecclesiastical consistory and the episcopal office and of facts about the professional activities of the military engineer I.V. Meshkov, civil engineer I. S. Baginov and architect-engineer G. R. Junghändel.
The article seeks to familiarize the scientific community with the archival drawings and architectural history of the Spiritual Consistory and elucidate the involvement of well-known Vladivostok architects in its design and construction, thus contributing to the historical information about the architectural heritage of Vladivostok.
