Ivanova Alina Pavlovna, Candidate of Architecture, Associate Professor of Department of architectural environment design of the Pacific State University, Khabarovsk, Russia
As a working hypothesis it is suggested that the local «folk» architecture reproduces the primary cultural matrix laid down in the frontier era. To understand the modern architectural landscape of the far Eastern cities (Blagoveshchensk, Ussuriysk, Khabarovsk, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Vladivostok), it is necessary to return to the era of the frontier and identify the main architectural scenes associated with these locations. The analysis of the historical architecture typical for each of the listed cities is given, the iconic objects which served as prototypes to the modern vernacular are revealed. The features of the «folk» architecture characteristic of each particular city are considered based on the material collected in the expeditions.
