Interest in GRAPHISOFT Russia student design competition runs high
BUDAPEST, September 3, 2015 — GRAPHISOFT Russia recently organized a successful architectural student competition in collaboration with Moscow State University of Civil Engineering (MGSU) and CPS Ltd. The competition attracted 107 students from across Russia, with many students competing in more than one category.
Sergey Sherbinenko won First Place in the Apartment houses category for his design of a sectional five-story apartment building. Designed as social housing, the building is imagined in the historic part of city and surrounded by two-story wooden buildings with a sloped roof. The building has 3 parts: a ground floor has shopping and offices while the other areas are designed as living areas. The building is paneled with wood texture.
Anastasia Shampurova took First Place in the Free Theme category for her design of the Museum of marine flora and fauna. The style of the building was inspired by the skeleton of a marine creature. The interior style has a similar design to the exterior, while the stepped roof of the construction repeats the shape of the sea creature’s shell.
The building accommodates a lecture hall, a library, and laboratories for marine studies. The nearby seashell-shaped outdoor Dolphinarium adds to the harmony of the planned location.
In the Joint category, Alexander Salnikov won first place for his design called "Green House,” an experimental multi-story residential building with attached block-greenhouses of a new generation, based on multi-tier hydroponic narrowly-racked plants.
This project is located on Krasnovisherskaya. Street, Perm. The design assumes the role of unifier in the urban development plan. The general concept of the design is based on the principle of simplicity. The tower consists of repeating stories with threading on the central engineering unit. Wind turbines and solar panels are located on top of the towers.
