Strelka

Strelka is a post-graduate institute dedicated to developing new perspectives on critical issues in contemporary Russia.

At its campus in Moscow, Strelka brings together architects, intellectuals, designers and media professionals in a relationship of creative interdisciplinarity. Each year, the institute’s researchers explore a selection of subjects of particular importance to Russian life — from the preservation of cities and the dispersal of populations to the future of energy and virtual space. At the end of each six-month research cycle, the Institute broadcasts its work in partnership with a network of publishing, television, web, mobile, and advertising organizations. Strelka operates as a non-profit, tuition-free foundation, independent of both state and free market pressures, providing a haven for inquiry and experimentation, and a crucial new platform for addressing Russian issues inside Russia and out.

The Strelka Institute’s Educational strategy is founded on a principle of “thinking and doing”. Because it is independent and unrestricted by the bounds of formal accreditation, Strelka’s work can be focused on practical application and production. Instead of a receiving a degree, its researchers generate their own products, media works that evolve from their studies and add critical new perspectives to current discussions. These works are not prototypes but fully realized expressions that are released to the public in partnership with prominent Russian media organizations, such as Afisha publishing, Yota mobile technology, Channel One, and the LiveJournal blogging service. By interweaving research and application, Strelka strives to expand the possibilities of education, architecture, media and design.

what’s good
in the hood:
around strelka

Strelka is situated in the former shop and garage of the ancient
red–brick chocolate factory Red October. A couple of
years ago, when the confectionery factory moved to the
suburbs of Moscow, the part of the island it occupied was
originally intended to become an elite residential area.
However, suffering from the crisis, the owners decided to
lease the land. As a result, Red October is currently a weird,
yet extremely lively mix of strip clubs, architectural agencies
and galleries.
