As part of Week 4 of the Advanced Urban Design Master’s Programme, the students were asked to analyse Shabolovka Street through mapping its physical and social features. The main goal of the workshop was to explore the influence of HSE University (either positive or negative) on Shabolovka and to analyze its potential role. Divided into 6 research groups, the students were asked to gather and map available information and to come up with an observation or recommendation. Each group was working on one of the three suggested themes: buildings, infrastructure and people.
