KSUAE exposition at the international exhibition ARCH Moscow 2020

KSUAE exposition at the international exhibition ARCH Moscow 2020



At the 25th anniversary International exhibition ARCH Moscow, the KSUAE exposition was presented in the "Architectural

education" section among the leading Moscow architecture universities. Academic staff and students specially for the exhibition invented and prepared an exposition demonstrating the high level of architectural education at our University.

In the exposition, the tutors asked for an answer to the theme of "hybridity" in architecture. Our exhibition is a hybrid of light and shadow, function and form, black and white, which is why it features hand-drawn ink graphics by Tiarch studio students, without the introduction of color.

At the opening of the exhibition, the honored guest was the Chief architect of Moscow, Sergei Kuznetsov, who carefully familiarized himself with the exposition of our University, highly appreciated the presented projects, noticed the excellent hand-drawn graphics and thanked the KSUAE tutors for the presentation.
