Unseen Moscow photographs in new Louis Vuitton book

Words by Rob Chilton

Acclaimed Russian architect Alexei Ginzburg is your expert guide to Moscow in a carefully-curated and alternative new travel book from Louis Vuitton.

Alexei Ginzburg’s Muscovite credentials are pretty solid. Born in Moscow 50 years ago, the top architect studied at the Moscow Architectural Institute where he is now a professor and is also the vice-president of the Union of Moscow Architects. The winner of several awards for his building projects in Moscow, Ginzberg clearly has deep roots in the Russian capital.
