Categories / Architecture/Personalia

BUBYR Alexey Fedorovich (1876-1919), architect. Graduated from the College of Civil Engineers (1902). Worked at the Department of Empress Maria’s Institutions (since 1903), taught at the College of Civil Engineers. The transition to austere rational Art Nouveau is obvious in the design of the apartment house of the St. Anna Lutheran Church and the building of Annenschule (9 Furshtatskaya Street, 1903-04; 8 Kirochnaya Street, 1905-06, both in cooperation with L.A. Ilyin). The apartment houses of A. S. Obolyaninov (37/2 Tavricheskaya Street, 1907-08) and of R.A. Diderichs (104 Bolshoy Avenue of Petrogradskaya Side, in cooperation with N.V. Vasilyev) are characterized by free treatment of classical elements. The apartment house of Bubyr at 11 Stremyannaya Street, (see Bubyr's house) became an exemplary model of the so-called Northern Modern style. Later, Bubyr attempted to achieve laconic and rational styles combining plastic expressiveness of volumetrical composition and silhouette. These characteristics are typical of the apartment houses of the Latvian Church (64 Zagorodny Avenue, 1910-12), and of K. I. Kapustin (159 Fontanka River Embankment, 1910-12), for the apartment house (23 Kovensky Lane, 1911-12), houses of A.V. Bagrova (6 Zayachy Lane, 1912), the residential complex of the Basseiny Brotherhood (currently, 58-60 Nekrasova Street, 10-12 Grechesky Avenue, 1912-14, in cooperation with E.F. Wirrich, A.I. Zazersky, Vasilyev). He designed buildings for the Main Chamber of Measures and Scales (19 Moskovsky Avenue, 1913-14) and the Russian Renault factory (69 Bolshoy Sampsonievsky Avenue, 1914-16). He was the author of a number of engineering works, as a specialist in cast iron structures. He resided at 34 Suvorovsky Avenue (1903-07), and at 11 Stremyannaya Street (1907-18). Following the October Revolution of 1917, he left for Ukraine and was murdered by bandits.
