Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin signed an order Wednesday to set up an architecture council for the city.

He said the council will be chaired by Moscow's current chief architect, Sergei Kuznetsov, Interfax reported Thursday.

The council will oversee the implementation of a unified construction and architectural policy in the capital and control the quality of construction projects.

It will also conduct professional evaluations of building and architectural projects and research in the field of architecture and urban development and analyze architectural standards in existing and new construction.

The council, which will convene at least once a month, will have between 12 and 21 members nominated by the city's chief architect and approved by the deputy mayor in charge of construction, Marat Khusnullin.
