St. Petersburg Urban Redevelopment Studio

The St. Petersburg studio brings US and Russian students together for a month of collaborative work creating a proposal for the redevelopment of a site in the former industrial zone of the city. This is an opportunity to develop your growing professional skills on an interdisciplinary, international team that will challenge you to think in new ways as you work together with local students to reimagine the future of their city. Guided by US and Russian faculty, students of architecture, planning, economics, real estate development, and historic preservation bring their diverse professional and cultural perspectives to envision together the next chapter in the history of the former Soviet industrial area. The studio culminates with a presentation of your proposals to local faculty, professionals, and city officials. This is a real opportunity to contribute your ideas to the discourse of development in a post-Soviet city. As you gain deep knowledge of the urban issues in St. Petersburg, you will also be developing valuable skills in preparation for global practice.
