Vysokovsky Graduate School of Urbanism (GSU) is a learning and research division of the Faculty of Urban and Regional Development of the National Research University Higher School of Economics. Founded in 2011, the School takes a multidisciplinary approach towards studying and planning modern cities, using the excellent foundation that one of Russia’s top universities has formed in the humanities and socioeconomics. The School’s mission is to create a centre in Russia for learning and research in urban studies and urban planning. It is envisioned that this centre will respond to the needs of the 21st century city and the corresponding era of megacities that are home to tens of millions of people with diverse interests and aspirations. These are cities where sources of information grow and the space for civil, creative, and economic opportunities expands. From 2016 the School is officially named in honor of its first dean and one of the founders — Alexander Vysokovsky (1948-2014).

Graduate School of Urbanism of the HSE Faculty of Urban and Regional Development invites you to the International Scientific Symposium “Tracing the Future City” which will take place in Schusev State Museum of Architecture in Moscow on 20-22 December 2018.
The symposium is held as part of the educational and exhibition project "NER: History of the Future" (curated by Alexandra Goutnova and Masha Panteleyeva). It is timed to the opening of the exhibition “NER: Tracing the Future City. 1959-1977” (curated by Alexandra Goutnova and Masha Panteleyeva), which will be held at the Schusev State Museum of Architecture from December 20, 2018 to February 10, 2019.
This three-day programme consists of a series of lectures and roundtables with architects, urban theorists and architectural historians from around the world. It will address several major themes derived from the work of the Soviet experimental group NER (Noviy Element Rasselenia, 1959-1977) — “Spatial planning”, “City & Technology”, and “Space and Society”. The members of the group were primarily concerned with the future development of Soviet urban planning and their innovative work had a significant influence on present day architectural theory and practice. The detailed programme is available here.
Entrance to all the events of the symposium is free upon registration.
The symposium is organised by the Graduate School of Urbanism of the HSE Faculty of Urban and Regional Development.
The symposium partners are the Schusev State Museum of Architecture, Center for Franco-Russian Studies in Moscow, French Institute in Russia, US Embassy in Moscow.
