USUAA students present their concepts of the Games Park

The competition for the zoning concept of the 2023 FISU World University Games Park organized by the Ural State University of Architecture and Art (USUAA) in partnership with the Games Directorate is coming to a close.

Students worked on their projects in several stages. Firstly, they have conducted extensive research. Contestants had to take the specifics of the Historical Square into account so that numerous zones of the Games Park could integrate seamlessly into the landscape of the spot so beloved by the citizens.

Contestants then had to analyze this information, combine it with the competition's technical requirements, and come up with their own architectural solution for the zoning of the Games Park. After a few months, an intermediate presentation of the projects was held. There, students received comments and suggestions regarding their works.

The final stage of the competition began on June 2, 2021, when students presented their projects in front of the professional jury consisting of prolific members of the architecture and design industries, USAAA professors, and representatives of the Games Directorate. Projects were judged based on their analytical, research, conceptual, architectural, and creative aspects.

Winners of the competition will be announced on June 9, 2021, during the final ceremony at the conference hall of the Ural Design Center.
