Projects

Green Spark

Green Spark

The Green Spark installation is research project dedicated to a cutting-edgetechnology, in which plants are used to produce renewable energy.

Advanced Housing Prototype

Advanced Housing Prototype

AR ‘Advanced Moscow Housing Prototype’ for 1000 people was developed by students of the international master program ‘Prototyping Future Cities’ under the guidance of Elena Mitrofanova and Ivan Mitrofanov.

Hydromatter

Hydromatter

This Hydromatter project focuses on the phenomenon of evaporation under conditions of high humidity and condensation on cool surfaces.

Smells

Smells

The Smells project is focused on the concept of odours, as well as their impact on the emotional state of a person as potential mood generators.
