Marina Laba

Project: SOCIAL PLACE BRANDING (2012)

research theme: urban culture
Directors: Michael Schindhelm

At Strelka, Marina produced a project of communication development between inhabitants of Izmaylovo and district branding. Marina distributed lilac seeds between the inhabitants (there is a big lilac garden in the district), provided them with instructions on planting and cultivation. She then asked the graduates of the district’s landscape college to create some sort of an installation using the lilac bushes grown by the district dwellers. The aim of this project was to make the inhabitants see how they can enhance their district with their own hands. Now Marina works as a designer at Moscow News.
