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).

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
