Krasnoyarsk is the easternmost city in Russia with a population of over one million. Being the economic center of a giant multinational and multicultural region that covers a land area eight times larger than Germany – but with a population of only 3 million – the city faces spatial, cultural and economic challenges which require an overhaul its urban development strategies. Krasnoyarsk will also host the Universiade in 2017, which will serve as a catalyst for urban renewal.
Consequently, Moscow Urban Forum organised a conference in Krasnoyarsk “Cities and territories tomorrow: Tools for positive change” to discuss how Krasnoyarsk’s transformation can be enabled in the coming decades.
Thomas Stellmach, director of TSPA, was invited as foreign expert together with Markus Appenzeller of MLA+ to discuss potential approaches for change together with Russian colleagues and experts.
The conference took place on Thursday, October 27, in Krasnoyarsk. See the slideshow above for some impressions. More information, including video excerpts, here.
