Urban Interventions In Moscow
High levels of migration, expanding city boundaries and changing cultural preferences among Muscovites combine to give Moscow a dynamic urban culture that is constantly evolving and changing. Informal aspects of urban culture such as graffiti, as well as more formal and institutionalised cultural manifestations like pop-up art clusters in abandoned factories, imbue the city’s architecture with new meanings. This research theme will look at the history of urban cultural practices and map the current and future trends, in an attempt to understand both the past and the future of the city’s cultural practices.
