David Sarkisyan’ office

David Sarkisyan was the director of the Schusev State Museum of Architecture. He died on Jan. 7 at a Munich hospital at the age of 62. “Wedged behind an ornate desk cluttered with Soviet-era souvenirs, architectural tchotchkes and ashtrays, he was constantly fulminating against the decrepit state of that city’s landmarks, enthusing about a drawing he had discovered buried somewhere in the museum’s archives, making introductions among the architects, historians and socialites who constantly wandered in and out, or pleading over the phone with the few journalists and government officials he felt he could trust” (via New York Times). This is his office. Take a look. (lmg)
