Second-year students of the master's program ‘Prototyping Future Cities’ start the academic year in Kazan
The Government of the Republic of Tatarstan, one of the Shukhov Lab partners, invited the second-year students of the master's program ‘Prototyping future cities’ to take part in the project workshop on re-programming and re-designing cultural objects. The main program is preceded by a two-day cross-disciplinary seminar dedicated to the concept of ‘social’. International and russian experts in sociology, anthropology and culture together with urban planners will try to answer the following questions: how do we define ‘social’ today? how does society and the state set tasks to solve social problems? what are the new needs of architecture?
Participants of the workshop will be divided into 7 groups supervised by the tutor – an architect who has experience in designing social facilities – and an expert. The expected result is an architectural project of new socio-cultural centers in the republic.
Curator of the program: Natalia Fishman, assistant to the President of the Republic of Tatarstan
