EdDesign Conference: Architecture / Education / Science

18:00 - 13 March, 2018
EdDesign Conference: Architecture / Education / Science

Today we live in a world where education—its purpose, methods and meanings—are rapidly changing, as well as the learning environment. EdDesign Сonference is designed to open and to support the discussion upon these issues.

How can we educate ourselves today and motivate ourselves? How does early childhood and the kindergarten environment influence children and their skills? How can school spaces become useful pedagogical instruments? How can the modern, thought-through museum motivate for better learning and knowledge sharing? In what way can government, citizens, pedagogues, architects, and designers collaborate to build better educational environments?

The Hidden History of St. Petersburg's Leningrad-Era Avant-Garde Architecture

While Yekaterinburg’s avant-garde architecture is the city’s hallmark, and Moscow’s avant-garde is the subject of arguments, in Saint Petersburg the prominence of the style and its influence are somewhat harder to identify. Some researchers even suggest that the avant-garde is an “outcast” or a “non-existent style” here, and its presence in has remained largely unrecognized. Alexander Strugach sheds light on this phenomenon:

In Saint Petersburg, the avant-garde style is simply overshadowed by an abundance of Baroque, Modernist and Classical architecture, and is not yet considered an accomplished cultural heritage category. Meanwhile, gradual deterioration makes proving the cultural value of avant-garde buildings even more difficult.

Oslo-based Transborder Studios is one of nine international firms competing to transform St. Petersburg’s “Grey Belt,” a 4,000-hectare territory of inactive industrial buildings and open spaces. The firm, which just won a competition for the development of Oslo’s new “Agricultural District,” is proposing a green rejuvenation with four multi-performing landscapes, a productive buffer, and development hubs.
