BA2 course, Techonlogy module
On January 21, 2020 a presentation of student projects took place at MARCH as part of the "Anatomy of Structures" course. The workshop was focused on the study of outstanding spatial structures of the late 19th - early 20th centuries in Russia and Europe. The invited critics were: MGSU tutor Yuri Yuzhakov, chief architect of GUM Vladimir Kamyshnikov, associate professor of Russian State University for the Humanities Ilya Pechenkin and chief engineer of Metal Yapi Vasily Anopchenko.

In the 1st semester, the study of each object began by a group of 5-6 students with an analysis of its socio-economic prerequisites, as well as technological and construction features. Further, with the help of literary sources, a detailed 3-dimensional model of the structure was created in order to identify and describe its basic structural principle.
Further, the structural analysis was performed to confirm the hypotheses and observations. Further, the shop drawings were prepared for the production of physical models, made from metal in 1:50 nad 1:25 scale. The individual elements were produced from ready-made brass profiles or cut out of brass sheets on a CNC mill, and then assembled in a certain sequence, which, if possible, mastered the logic of assembling the structure during the construction process.
