The Samarsky Yard |
Investigation of the urban condition of the historical centre of Samara
/ Publication of the research results in form of a book at Tatlin
The series of maps, graphs, photographs, stories, and interviews is
a tool to support the dialogue in Samara, and a resource for urban
planning and cultural heritage professionals, academics, and anyone
else who is interested in the mechanisms of city-forming and renewal
in a post-socialist setting. The Samarsky Yard provides a unique case
study on the topic of communal courtyards and community living in
the heart of a large city centre. As an urban module, it offers a
flexible and sophisticated approach to density, social contracts and
sustainability, and has the potential to inspire future developments
in Samara and other cities around the world.
The project has been made possible thanks to a subsidy of the Creative
Industries Fund NL.
