In this special event, architect and real estate expert professor Ralph Hofmann from HSBA Hamburg School of Business Administration in Germany will take a closer look at the determinants of meaningful communication in architecture and how aesthetic sustainability is often overruled by economic forces. It is his thesis that by raising the awareness of semiotic principles, the quality of urban space and architectural solutions will also rise. In this lecture, professor Hofmann will specifically point out the differences between Russian and Western European architecture in terms of semiotics.
