APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN
On July 17-28, 2017, Moscow will host the workshop «In-transition lab: Structure as an Urban
Catalyst». It is a joint programme of London Architectural Association School of Architecture
and Shukhov Lab at Moscow HSE Graduate School of Urbanism.
In 2016, the participants of the summer course studied and tested the possible scenarios of the
development of Shabolovka district at a neighbourhood scale.
The upcoming workshop will continue to
explore the area of Shabolovka – so-called 'museum of constructivism' – and will focus on an
architectural scale this year: we will develop a physical structure which will serve as a catalyst
for the development and transformation of Shabolovka district.
The course is aimed at the students who study architecture, urbanism, and media design, as well
as at PhDs in Architecture and Urbanism, and young specialists.
A team of professionals from the Architectural Association and specialists from Shukhov Lab
will acquaint the workshop participants with different methods of experimental urban analysis,
architectural design and prototyping, the basics of speculative design, storytelling, motion design,
Following the interdisciplinary approach, the participants will work in teams. The first team will
focus on the appearance of the structure and its architectural details while the second
team will develop the content of the object speculating on the possible scenarios of the
development of Shabolovka area and will present via video-mapping. By the end of
the workshop, both teams will join their developments in a final product – an architectural
structure, which will be able to make a change at a neighbourhood scale.
The workshop will be complemented by lectures of tutors and invited experts, as well as seminars
on digital software (Rhinoceros + Grasshopper, Adobe Creative Suite) and on the use of the
professional equipment available at Shukhov Lab (3D printers, laser machines, etc.).
An exhibition of student projects at a local gallery and publication of the sketchbook will follow
