Moscow State University of Civil Engineering (MGSU) was established in 1921. Before 1993 it was known as Moscow Institute of Civil Engineering named after V.V. Kuibyshev (MISI). It is one of the oldest technical institutes of higher education of the Russian Federation.
The competition attracted 107 students from across Russia, with many students competing in more than one category.
“Apartment Houses” category
Sergey Sherbinenko won First Place in the Apartment houses category for his design of a sectional five-story apartment building. Designed as social housing, the building is imagined in the historic part of the city and surrounded by two-story wooden buildings with a sloped roof.
The building is paneled with wood texture and glass and an innovative take on the roof line that responds to context.
“Free Theme” category
Anastasia Shampurova took First Place in the Free Theme category for her design of the Museum of Marine Flora and Fauna.
The interior style has a similar design to the exterior, while the stepped roof of the construction repeats the shape of the sea creature’s shell. The building accommodates a lecture hall, a library, and laboratories for marine studies. The nearby seashell-shaped outdoor Dolphinarium adds to the harmony of the planned location.
In the Joint category, Alexander Salnikov won first place for his design called “Green House,” an experimental multi-story residential building with attached block-greenhouses of a new generation, based on multi-tier hydroponic narrowly-racked plants.
The general concept of the design is based on the principle of simplicity. The tower consists of repeating stories with threading on the central engineering unit. Wind turbines and solar panels are located on top of the towers.
