GSU documentary about Paris is now available online
The HSE Vysokovsky Graduate School of Urbanism has made a documentary on renovation in Paris. In it, government officials, architects and residents of the Paris suburbs discuss social and urban projects changing the city. The film was shown on December 21 at Shukhov Lab.
The HSE Vysokovsky Graduate School of Urbanism together with the French association D’est are organizing a joint summer school this year in France. The School will run from June 25 – July 8, 2017 in Paris and Montpellier and aims to attract students and young professionals in urban development and planning, municipal administration, and civil initiatives.
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.
Rotterdam, Moscow, Venice. Graduate School of Urbanism at the World’s Largest Architecture Exhibitions
In April and May, the Graduate School of Urbanism (GSU) took part in three of the largest architecture biennales, held in Rotterdam, Moscow, and Venice. The exhibitions presented the results of independent research carried out by the School, student projects, and the results of an international student workshop organized by GSU.
2015 has been a year of many changes for the School. The appointment of a new Dean at the start of the year kicked off a flood of innovations. Launching exciting projects and participating in national and international events, the school has been building its reputation and increasing visibility both in Russia and as far afield as Iran and Hong Kong. Winter and Summer Schools and the Laboratory of Advocacy Planning bring more ideas and minds to focus on revolutionising the social process of Urban Planning in Russia and around the world.
On September 20 – October 3 the International Policy Forum on Urban Growth and Conservation was held in Iran.
