The Urban And Advanced: 12 Faces of the Master’s Programme

The Advanced Urban Design master’s programme, launched in 2016 by the HSE’s Graduate School of Urbanism in cooperation with the Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design, gathered students with different backgrounds and unique stories. Strelka Magazine found out what brought them all together, their expectations of studying in Russia and the goals they set for themselves and their native cities.

Learning from Shabolovka

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.
