Strelka, a new postgraduate school in Moscow for Media, Architecture and Design, is teaming up with OMA at the 12th International Architecture Exhibition – directed by Kazuyo Sejima and titled People meet in Architecture – for a conversation on architectural education – in Russia and beyond. OMA’s think tank, AMO, has developed an educational programme for Strelka, which will open its doors to students in October.

The conversation in Venice will introduce Strelka to a global audience. Strelka founders Alexander Mamut and Ilya Oskolkov-Tsentsiper will discuss their ambition to raise the standard of architectural education in Russia through this new research platform in the heart of Moscow. Rem Koolhaas will introduce Strelka’s educational team – drawn from AMO’s global network of collaborators – and present the research agenda, based on five interconnected themes: Design, Energy, Preservation, Public Space and Thinning – issues that are critical worldwide and particularly urgent in Russia.

Reinier de Graaf (OMA partner and director of AMO) and Michael Schindhelm (cultural advisor and writer), both co-authors of Strelka’s educational programme, will join the discussion after the keynote presentations. Members of Strelka’s Steering Committee Sergey Adonyev, Dmitry Likin and Oleg Shapiro will be present at the discussion.

Strelka and OMA’s public conversation is in sync with a key curatorial aim of the Biennale Architettura: to reconsider architectural education and to transform the Biennale programme – its lectures, exhibitions and workshops – into educational opportunities for students and the general public.
