Premises of St. Petersburg University of IT, Mechanics and Optics in Pushkin

Best Architectural Project by a Student

About the project
The key objective of the project is to establish an environment for educational and academic activities, both contemporary and matching the surroundings. Getting to the campus premises, visitors find themselves at a triangular-shaped square, surrounded with studying blocks, administrative buildings, research centers, and an amphitheater. The square is finalized with a gym complex. A wide ring pedestrian alley connects the square to other venues, including hostels and production sites. The central landscaped park comprises a students’ club, a sight-seeing tower, a pond, an amphitheater, a winter garden, some workout zones, summer cafes, as well as bicycle and ski rentals.
