HYBRID URBANISM

The theme of this year – what Strelka has called Hybrid Urbanism – sets out to explore the ways digital technologies are manifested in the space of the city and speculate of their potential applications and transgressions. If personal data becomes the new economic resource, how can we claim ownership of it? When inevitably Google moves into the urban space, what new regulations will accompany this expansion? How can something small, such as ad blockers, contribute to a positive change in food industry? When the city is no longer brick and mortar but a responsive sensor-powered environment, what new behaviours will it bring? Learn more

Big Future

This time Strelka’s educational programme was called Big Future. The students were offered a list of global trends that will radically affect our life in the next century. Over the course of the program the teams explored 11 of those trends by challenging existing definitions and proposing their own. 11 different projects constitute the outcome of this work and also form the basis for the Big Future exhibition that presents an imaginary landscape of Russia in the future.
