The Laboratory for Experimental Urban Design is a research department at the Vysokovsky Graduate School of Urbanism (GSU). It brings together HSE’s expertise in social and economic studies, GSU’s academic knowledge in spatial planning, urban zoning, and urban studies, and the practical experience of urban transformations of the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) in Barcelona. The Laboratory’s activities aim to foster innovation in urban planning and development that take into account the new economic trends and city practices related to the advanced use of information technology and promote positive change in Moscow and other Russian cities.
