His incumbency saw a great deal of new building, including the Granovitaia Palace in 1433 and the Bell Tower in 1443, as well as the decoration of church and civic structures and the restoration of ancient churches. New chronicle compilations (1432, 1448) and other works of literature were also produced during his time in office.
