#Repost @missnovitckaja S.P. Ryabushinsky’s Mansion (Gorky’s House) is a remarkable monument of the Moscow modernist style, built in 1900-1903 upon the project by architect F.O. Shekhtel. 🔹On the secret third floor, there is an Old Believers’ prayer room. It is decorated with a carpet in neo-Russian style that links early Byzantine and ancient Russian elements with the modernist style.🔹 #architecture #museum #history #art #moscow #russia
