Stop theatre. The court has prohibited the construction of the new arena of the Maly Dramatic Theatre on Zvenigorodskaya Street / Delovoy Peterburg
The construction of the new arena of the Maly Dramatic Theatre on Zvenigorodskaya Street has been prohibited by the court at the request of the design’s author, the architect Mikhail Mamoshin. The Mamoshin Bureau applied to the state commercial court to ensure that the use of its architectural design was prohibited. In addition, the Thirteenth State Commercial Court of Appeal awarded RUB 22.4 million to be recovered from the North-Western Directorate of the Ministry of Culture (the defendant). The Mamoshin Bureau developed an architectural solution for the theatre under a contract with Teatralno-Decoracionnie Masterskie JSC (“TDM”), but received no money for it.
