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).

Moscow Urban Forum 2018 began on 17 July at the Concert Hall of Zaryadye Park. Within the international congress Shukhov Lab of the HSE Graduate School of Urbanism presented the VR ‘Advanced Urban Prototype’ which was designed and produced by students of the international master program ‘Prototyping future cities’ under the supervision of Vicente Guallart, Elena Mitrofanova and Ivan Mitrofanov.
Yaroslav Kuzminov, HSE rector, came to see the exposition of the ‘Advanced Urban Prototype’ which proposes a residentantial self-sufficient building of the future.
Shukhov Lab students analyzed historical context and traced the technologies development of Moscow housing starting with the ‘Revenue house of the merchant society’. Then they defined key points of coming challenges of a new type of housing: new ecological conditions, new social demands and new digital technologies.
The designed autonomous building provides ecological benefits and also forms a new economic model which is based on local materials and alternative energy. The model presents a sharing platform which leads us towards a sustainable urban society with mixed-use, sharing community, distributed systems and self-sufficiency.
The choice of materials affects not only the facades’ appearance of the building but also its environmental friendliness and energy efficiency. The use of wood significantly reduces the amount of emissions at all stages from production to operation of the building, and a large number of suitable wood varieties growing in close proximity allows to introduce ‘zero kilometre’ program, when the production of parts takes place next to the construction of the facility itself.
Moscow Urban Fest 2018 will continue till July 22 at Zaryadye Park.
