About Winter Univeristy
Winter University is a significant architectural event in this cold part of Russia called Siberia. Every year the participants from all over the world come to Irkutsk to work 3 weeks on developing new urban solutions for Irkutsk. This year, the subject of session was “Perestroika – Development and transformation of urban space”. Six teams of participants were working to develop projects on 3 sites in Irkutsk: «Deputatskaya», «Barrikad»and  «Yakobi». The fourth site «Tereshkovoy» was dedicated to the group of experts.  In the end the invited experts chose the winning project – proposal of Team F.

Research and conceptual project
Aim: Transform the existing city structure within the boundary of the 4th site «Tereshkovoy» into walkable neighborhood using as less measures as possible (minimal changes, minimal costs, maximal effectiveness)
Measures: Grasshopper+ Galapagos, Walkscore.com
Solution: an algorithm, which points out the address of the new amenity (will be presented soon with the full results!)

At the moment, you could watch a small trailer, how the algorithm solves the geometrical problem:
