Who was Aleksey Gornostayev?

Alexey Maksimovich Gornostaev was a Russian architect, notable as a pioneer in Russian Revival, the builder of Valaam Monastery hermitages, Trinity-Sergius Convent in Saint Petersburg and Uspenski Cathedral in Helsinki. He is credited with the rebirth of traditional tented roof architecture of Russian North.

He should not be confused with two other Gornostaev architects, also Russian Revival practitioners and preservationists:

Ivan Ivanovich Gornostaev, chief architect of Saint Petersburg Public Library and University

Fyodor Fyodorovich Gornostaev, notable for Rogozhskoye Cemetery belltower and restoration of landmark buildings in Suzdal, Kursk and Moscow.
