Studio report

This studio analysed the virtual layers of Moscow, and formulated real-life solutions to the problems of urban environment.
Like other cities in the world, Moscow is rapidly digitising. Relatively recent technological developments have created a new layer of urban life, which is changing traditional perceptions of the city. Social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, hosting services like Flickr and applications such as Yandex Traffic have all helped to create an artificial, virtual environment for the city. This virtual layer of Moscow is the research subject of this theme. Among the tasks is an analysis of the mutual influence and interaction between the virtual and real city spaces, with the findings used to create a guide to digital Moscow.
