On October 5, a meeting of the jury of the young architects' contest to transform the LETI public spaces took place at the Popov Museum-Apartment. The participants discussed the near-final results of the public vote and further prospects for the development of the university campus.

Anastasia Minina, Vice-Rector for International Affairs of LETI, presented promising projects to transform public areas, in which LETI offers cooperation to architectural and design universities and bureaus.

The electric theater project in the inner yard of Building D will turn its walls into interactive screens for presentations of developments and new technologies and the courtyard itself into nearly all-weather places for study and recreation. The historic interiors of the LETI library can accommodate newly optimized spaces and become a popular venue for interdisciplinary seminars, workshops, and meetings. The university waits for proposals from potential authors for the space design project of Kudrovo Technopark School, supported by LETI.

The jury members discussed the preliminary results of the "LETI: Future Academic Spaces" contest. In each of the four nominations, there are undisputed leaders. The award ceremony will take place as part of the international discussion on institutional and business solutions for the university integration into the city life "Big City University." The event will take place on October 13 in the video conference hall of Building 5.

"The competition allows us to envision campus development in the long run. We will use the ideas submitted by the participants in our work. It is important to note that the projects of the voting leaders coincide with our vision of transforming these spaces."

 Vladimir Pavlovskikh, the Head of the Property Development Office of LETI

The winners will have the opportunity to implement their ideas at the LETI campus, undertake internships at leading architectural firms and design companies, as well as receive prizes from the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in St. Petersburg.
