Andrei Goncharov

Project: Crowd-Sourced Moscow 2012. A Public Space Game (2011)

research theme: Public Space
Directors: Michael Schindhelm, Yuri Grigoryan

Designer Andrei Goncharov is from Moscow. He studied in the Public Space theme, with Michael Schindhelm and Yuri Grigoryan, and sought to design the concept of a game that would help improve Moscow’s public spaces using crowd-sourcing mechanisms. Andrei argued that part of Moscow’s problems are down to the lack of communication between people and their neighbours and those who impact city planning, and saw increased conversation and discussion as a key element in the improvement of urban life. Andrei currently works at Strelka Institute.
