The goal for the reconstruction of the Moscow Land Committee building is to expand and refine this administrative structure. This aim dictates its architectural qualities as well. The pragmatic, dry approach to the facades, based on the alternation of horizontal articulations of two colours, reflects the internal structure of the building. The superstructure on the roof is set slightly back from the surface of the facade, thus disguising the structure's height in this area of historical buildings.
The plot area of about 500 hectares proposed for the EXPO is located in the western part of the city on the picturesque shore of the Upper Iset pond, 3 km from the center of Ekaterinburg and close to the border that separates the European and Asian parts of Russia.
