Closing Presentation for the Workshop

Organizers will give a lecture and a quick overview of the workshop, explaining the specific assignments given to the participants. The participants will then present their proposed solutions or projects. After this, there will be time for questions.

Director of Rotterdam’s Berlage Institute, Vedran Mimica and architect Thomas Stellmach from the Berlin-based bureau Uberbau look at the possible scenarios for the development of Red October.

In order to tackle the Red October project, workshop participants try to understand how new centralities can become performing environments and enhance the existing conditions of their surroundings. What quality will make the Red October transformation successful? What should the Red October offer to Moscow, and what kind of urbanity could it propose?
