What should be modern universities? How will new campuses and educational spaces change cities? Can institutions give rise to new meanings for society? These and other topics were discussed by experts and students of leading universities at the first design session “Architecture of the educational space” organized by the Trianon Dialogue Forum and the Fund Moscow Centre of urban studies «City» at the Moscow Urban Forum 2019.


The design session on the development of the concept of a new generation of educational space was held on July 5, 2019, as part of the Moscow Urban Forum in Nature Center space of Zaryadye Park. Youth teams consisting of students, graduate students, young scientists from MGIMO, Stroganov Academy, Moscow Architectural Institute, RUDN University, with participation of professional researchers, designers and architects within four-hour session developed approaches to the concept of educational space of new generation, taking into account the tasks of promoting the export of education, developing human potential, as well as integrating education in the economy and urban development.

Artem Malgin:

Unification of universities is ongoing in both Russia and France. The Russian national project “Science” and federal projects of the Ministry of Education, which are aimed at creating a new campus infrastructure, focus on creating comfortable conditions for students and teachers and developing the export of education. But creating a modern competitive educational space is not a trivial task. University campuses should be integrated in the economy and the urban environment, as well as in social processes.

Forum guests from France and Russia, experts in fields of architecture, design and education spoke in front of the session with mini-lectures on how the future of campuses and universities in Russia and abroad is seen. “The university in old sense no longer exists, because today the digital world can completely or partially change the model of education that we had,” a special guest of the session, Dominique Fache, appealed to participants of the discussion, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Russian Technology Fund (RTF), member of the Board of Directors of Sophia Antipolis Technopark (France). “The industry of the 21st century is the industry of the mind. It needs a living environment, the ability to go to a horizontal level. Today, the main fuel of the economy is not oil, but brains”.

Representatives of a new generation of architects and designers should create new generation buildings, the organizers of the event believe, since these representatives are part of the generation that will develop, learn, develop, create. New forms for organizing a collective search for solutions based on design thinking technologies can become an effective tool for searching educational space concepts of new generation.

Alexei Rashodchikov:

For the second year now, we have been participating in the Russian-French forum “Trianon Dialogue” – this is a very interesting format for sharing experience and cooperation between architects, urban planners and scientists from the two countries. When in the spring this year colleagues formulated a new task for us to develop university campuses, the idea of a contest of architectural projects with the participation of young architects’ teams from France and Russia was born. The idea was simple – let yesterday’s graduates or today’s students design their own educational space. Of course, this must be done under the guidance of already established architects, but always with the participation of youth teams.

Vitaliy Stavitskii:

We see the most acute request of students, graduate students, young scientists in improving the visual, aesthetic, functional and technological characteristics of educational buildings. The buildings of the imperial and industrial era are monumental, historic and respectful, but the new era, together with its communications, technology, information speed and interdisciplinarity, requires new spaces.

The result of the event will be the concept of a modern educational space, which can be implemented in projects for the construction of new campuses, scientific and educational territories not only in Moscow, but also in other regions of Russia. Specialists from France also showed interest in projects for creating a new educational environment, which opens up opportunities for a productive dialogue and implementation of mutual projects by universities of both countries.
