Studio report

Spatial analysis of the city economy, with a focus on the interaction of formal and informal economies.
How do the formal and informal economies interact in the city? Can we create a structure that will ensure the mutually beneficial coexistence of the two? The studio team researched and systematised a mass of data on three layers of the Moscow economy: the global, formal, and informal. Under the guidance of economists, geographers, architects and sociologists, students conducted a spatial analysis of the city economy and mapped its significance for the future development of the metropolis.
The studio was held in partnership with the Moscow State University’s Department of Economics.
