  • Discussion «The Matrix of Meanings: How A Unique Generation Will Change The World And Cities»

    Place

    Hall A (Anteroom)

    The city is not a static form; its layout and content are constantly changing. People are the main element that conditions changes in the cities. They create artifacts, form meanings, ideas, values, and visions that are reflected in the urban environment. Each new generation creates its own urban image: it transforms the physical space and makes up a new code.

    In the modern world we also observe the undeniable influence of digital technologies that also change people, their attitude to life in the city, to the management of megacities, sets of rules of interaction between people, cultural codes, the economy of the city, creating phygital spaces that combine physical and digital environments.

    During the session, participants will try to understand the role of the new generation and how it changes cities, urban economy, management principles and meanings. Also they will look for ways leading to a bright present and even better tomorrow.

  • Plenary discussion «An Environment Forms A Person. A Person Forms An Environment»

    Place

    Hall A (Anteroom)

    In this session participants will discuss the conceptual and architectural solutions that contribute to the development of humans and their talents, as well as how a person influences certain environmental decisions.

    An era of radical changes is coming to the sphere of education. Educational institutions cease to be just places where people learn, they become key players in the cities, centers where the creative environment aimed at developing human potential, economy, city is created.

    For a very long time this sphere could afford to be as immune as possible to changes in society - so that it had the reputation of one of the most conservative areas of human activity, however, these days the situation is changing. The changes in the educational process model leads to changes of the requirements for the organization of the educational space, as well as for the interaction of educational institutions with the surrounding urban environment.During the session participants will discuss what should the educational space be like, not only from the perspective of architecture, but also conceptually.

    Key questions:

    • How did the digital revolution affect the places that we traditionally refer to as educational institutions and should they remain its familiar form?·      
    • What does the ideal educational campus look like?·      
    • How are the university and city environments interrelated?·      
    • How is it better to carry out the process of integration between educational institutions and the urban environment?

    Place

    Hall А (Anteroom)

    Digital platforms, cloud services, e-government, electronic public services – all these words have become part of our daily life. However, what meaning lies behind these words?

    Today we observe not only the emerging of new technologies, but also the emerging of a new type of state; state based on different principles and values: transparency, openness, quality and honesty. In the «new digital state» new management principles are created, principles based on big data and its management, automation, anticipation of problems and improvement quality of management.

    During the session participants will discuss:

    • How the big data, model building and simulation as well as technologies change the city management?
    • Will the competencies and responsibilities of city officials change? Is it enough just follow the rules and regulations or should the approaches to city management be changed?
    • Will the officials cease to exist with the advent of technologies, automation and cloud services?

    How can the city officials improve the urban environment and make life easier for residents?

    Interactive Discussion «Museums Of The Future: Realms Of Cultural And Historical Memory As Realms Of Empathy»

    Place

    Hall B

    The discussion theme is the development of modern cultural and museum space, and the changes that the content and function of museums are going through. Participants will also discuss the perspectives of urban development in terms of an insightful heritage (culture, education, science).

    To talk about the city we could use a metaphor of a time machine: city preserves memories of generations; urban geometry and buildings reflect different epochs. Today, under the transformation of the personal life style, employment, human needs, the reformatting of cities, their cultural and museum spaces is a burning issue. At the same time, as we know, a simple replacement of elements of the urban environment does not bring significant results, it is necessary to reconsider and redesign the city, as it was necessary to reimagine the city in the epoch of transition from steam engine to electricity.

    However, every time when it comes to changes in the city we are faced with the dilemma – «To change or not to change?»

  • Discussion «Digital-City: How The New Communication Will Recode The Cities»

    Place

    Hall A (Anteroom)

    The modern city is cloaked in a shroud of media, we encounter them everywhere. Social networks, Telegram, Instagram and other new media are becoming a new space for establishing relationships between people, creating communities of interest, solving problems and obtaining relevant information.

    Nowadays it is no longer newspapers and television, but the citizens themselves form the agenda. They create telegram-channels or video blog on youtube uniting hundreds and thousands of people, telling them what they care about - whether it's a new place in the city, philosophical debate or solution for a social problem. Or showing reviews and photos of city attractions, cafes and shops in Instagram they are changing the economy of the city. Everybody – through opinions, testimonials, and impressions - sets a new city for everybody else.

    During the session, influential «grown-ups» (from the TV) and influential «children» who determine the agenda in youtube and Telegram (the media environment of modern kids) will discuss how new media shape the city, things that enter into the picture and become of a great importance, and also what we should be prepared for in the future.

    Book presentation "Code of Petersburg"

    At the initiative of the Committee for State Control, Use and Protection of Historical and Cultural Monuments, together with the  studio "R.E.D." and the publishing house "Papyrus", a project has been implemented that will allow everyone without exception to become closer to St. Petersburg and find out what is the key to understanding his heritage. One of the main challenges for St.Petersburg now is the life of the city, expressed in its development and careful attitude to the unique historical heritage. In order to solve this problem, it is necessary to make the main first step - to understand what makes Petersburg special. It was for this purpose that the Code of St. Petersburg was created: a book, a film, an animation.

    Place

    Hall A (Anteroom)

    Traditionally, Saint Petersburg was the city where the future of the whole country was created; it was the forefront of meanings, politics and culture, it set the tone for all the incredible and promising inventions. Today the city is frozen; it is conservatively waiting for changes that are inherent in its nature. The temporary provincalization of the imperial city must come to an end. Scientists, cultural figures, science fiction writers, politicians, philosophers and young promising stars of modern Russia will discuss how Saint Petersburg can return to the stage and become the first violin in the country's orchestra.
