Russian architect and a visual artist, one of the forefathers of so called ''paper architecture''. Born in Moscow in 1955. He attended the Moscow middle School of Art in 1968-1969. In 1978, Brodsky graduated from Moscow Architectural Institute. From 1972 to 1992, he used to work in collaboration with Iliya Utkin. In the year 2000, he founded the Alexander Brodsky's Architetural Bureau.
For many years, Brodsky has been working on the edge of contemporary art and architecture. Nameless cities of clay, either hidden in the trash bins or soaked in motor oil, a collection of childhood belongings sculpted from memory, windows from an old factory with drawings scraped on them, woodboard entrance into the cellar with a metro sign attached to it, a rotunda made out of doors, a cistern ''elevated'' from the ground with pieces of fabric, fans and chandeliers- in his objects and installations, Brodsky often implies the ''simpliest'' of materials and found objects that are reliable to his aesthetics and create a tremendous visitor's reaction.
