Stylistic Preferences in the Works of Architect Vladimir Sherwood Junior

The paper is dedicated to the works of Vladimir Sherwood Junior, a Moscow architect of the late 19th — early 20th century. His whole artistic biography is described in chronological order and illustrated in detail. Some of his constructions are studied in terms of their style, demonstrating the wide scope of historical stylization that he used. The author also supposes that he may have created the famous “Swallow Nest” (Lastochkino Gnezdo) in Crimea. After analyzing certain works of the architect, the paper offers a general description of his activity in Moscow.
