On 1 November 2017 the Belarusian State Archives of Scientific and Technical Documentation (BGANTD) opened an exhibition “Master Plan of Restoration and Development of Minsk 1946” dedicated to the creation and ratification of this document of great importance in the postwar history of the Belarusian capital city.

The exhibition shows a color graphic image of the General Plan and other documents related to its design, discussion and adoption: photographs of destroyed Minsk, famous architects who participated in making the document, design drafts of Central Square in Minsk and other documents.

The General Plan of 1946 remains the main document related to the restoration of the destroyed Belarusian capital. Work on the document started immediately after the liberation of the city and involved the leading architects in the Soviet Union: A.V. Shchusev, A.G. Mordvinov, N.D. Kolli, I.G. Langbard, N.E. Trakhtenberg and others.

An important part in the formation of the future image of the city was assigned to Central Square, the contest designs for which were conducted in the second half of the 1940s.

The General Plan of 1946 was designed for the period until 1960 and determined the main areas of development in the Belarusian capital at this time: industrial and civil construction, landscape gardening, transportation issues.
