«In the exhibition, we present Vkhutemas as a system of architectural education, focused on fundamentals of color, space, etc, as well as an alternative to computer-based design. The writing and teaching of Iakov Chernikhov is presented in the show as a universal method that can be taught to architects who want develop new, more creative forms. The Young Pioneer Palace in Lenin Hills shows how architectural design can encourage certain educational approaches and values. In this discussion, we will touch on various aspects in the relationship between architecture and education». – Anton Kalgaev, Brendan McGetrick and Daria Paramonova, curators of «Fair Enough».

What role does space play in the education process? What is it that every one of us can learn from an education in architecture? Why and what do architects learn, if a large part of their work will soon be automated?

These and other questions will be debated by architect Anna Bokov and architectural historian Anna Bronovitskaya (both of whom participated in «Fair Enough») along with rector of the MARSh School of Architecture, Evgeny Ass,  KB Strelka partner Grigory Revzin and Varvara Melnikova, CEO Strelka Institute.

The conversation will be moderated by exhibition curators Anton Kalgaev and Daria Paramonova.
