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).

I will participate!
The results of the workshop will be exhibited as part of the 'Moscow 2050' vision at the Shenzhen Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism. Moscow is a city of continuous transformation. In recent years, it has successfully completed multiple projects to become a global city. Now it faces new projects related to urban regeneration, which must make them compatible with the global urban challenges of our era, such as Re-Naturalisation and Biodiversity, Local Food, Energy & Water Self-sufficiency, Green Materials, Smart Transport, Urban Big Data, Cultural Inclusion, Social Inclusion: Kids and Eldery. Moscow has also the potential to be one of the world leaders in bio-economics that reinforces its ecological positioning.
The presentation of the ‘Moscow 2050’ project gives an opportunity to reflect, discuss and imagine possible future scenarios for Moscow.
The Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism 2019 in Shenzhen is the largest exhibition in Asia dedicated to the urban challenges of our time. In 2019, the event is dedicated to the theme 'Urban space + technological innovation'.
