Do you want to participate in the Shenzhen Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism 2019? Do you want to imagine the future of Moscow? The HSE Laboratory for Experimental Urban Design Shukhov Lab together with the Committee for Architecture and Urban Planning of Moscow invite students, young architects and designers to apply for the International workshop curated by chief architect of Moscow Sergey Kuznetsov and ex-chief architect of Barcelona Vicente Guallart.
Workshop will take place from October 21 to November 4. An expert jury will be select participants based on portfolio results. Learn more and apply on the event website.
The results of the workshop will be exhibited as part of the 'Moscow 2050' vision at the Shenzhen Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism. Moscow is a city of continuous transformation. In recent years, it has successfully completed multiple projects to become a global city. Now it faces new projects related to urban regeneration, which must make them compatible with the global urban challenges of our era, such as Re-Naturalisation and Biodiversity, Local Food, Energy & Water Self-sufficiency, Green Materials, Smart Transport, Urban Big Data, Cultural Inclusion, Social Inclusion: Kids and Eldery. Moscow has also the potential to be one of the world leaders in bio-economics that reinforces its ecological positioning.
The presentation of the ‘Moscow 2050’ project gives an opportunity to reflect, discuss and imagine possible future scenarios for Moscow.
The Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism 2019 in Shenzhen is the largest exhibition in Asia dedicated to the urban challenges of our time. In 2019, the event is dedicated to the theme 'Urban space + technological innovation'.
