absence of architecture
the meaning of the architecture of the university in its absence,being fresh without prejudices and stereotypes. The architecture like superstructure that is needed exactly now, for a specific student, group, society. The university, as a social institution, was gradually taking shape from society, living and organically coexisting with each individual person, not to mention students and teachers. Why architecture should be dead or static, monumental. The architecture of education, especially education of architects, should be as white paper as possible. It should not be. You can only understand something by doing it yourself. Everyone is called upon to go through the process of design, construction and life.
eternal and participatory
architecture as an asset, an asset of a particular student

or an association of students. Live and participatory architecture and, consequently, the university can only be born from warm hands. It is like a living organism, wich improves and develops itself every second of its own life. An architecture that can teach is simply obliged to show life, birth, death and renewal by its example.
a practical platform for creating a lifestyle
Everyone is called up to go through the processes of design, construction and life.
Building a world together brings us a shoulder feeling.
Вuildings and structures are a brace of life. and people are building this life. not only students come to build and live at the university, but also just people interested in their city. On this site there will be opportunity to practice technology development, to make experiments, to transform the existing environment.
small model of the big world
not literally but essentially. The cyclical nature of everything that happens in a particular place. People are the pioneers, discoverers and descendants. Every piece of that land responds to its caring inhabitants.

«everyday life» 1st cycle
functioning atrium and exposition, lecture hall and auditoriums, working workshops and dormitories in full layout

«lull» 2nd cycle
only the surrounding landscape and the silence of the place

«experiment» 3rd cycle
only a few blocks of dormitories are functioning, the entire site serves to develop new urban planning or other architectural theories

«mass» 4th cycle
an open atrium, lecture halls are transformed into amphitheater seating, dormitories and pavilions are operating at full capacity

The number of rooms in the dormitory may vary depending on the number and needs of the residents. residents can change the position of their room, its orientation and floor as they want. Cafes, common rooms and recreation areas are made up of smaller blocks. In the case of festivals, concerts, summer camps, student events, the blocks can be disbanded and located on the landscape

Depending on the specific needs of students, lecture halls and auditoriums can be separated or united, forming a movable mass and a convenient structure for education and lectures. During the public events can be transformed into a large amphitheater. Being a hollow plate-like and self-supporting structure, blocks can be anything

Workshops are an important part of the university grounds. Thoughts, theories and ideas created in the learning process undergo practical testing, including here. They can be transformed in height, position, function. despite the fact that the main idea of the university is its practical part, the main technologies are worked out here

The exposition was supposed to be not in a specific place but on the site of the entire university. Development of certain aspects in the design could take up the entire area. Nevertheless, the circular indoor exposition exists in the 1st and 4th cycles. Folding it forms a unity with the natural landscape of the square.
