The graduate Tatiana Lebedeva from the interior design course of the Faculty of Architecture and Design at Hochschule Wismar, University of Applied Sciences, won the "Non Architecture Awards for Unbuilt Projects" in the category "Architecture" in December 2021 with her master's thesis "Khrushchyovka 2.0 - How we will live tomorrow". In her thesis, Lebedeva addressed an alternative design solution for Moscow prefabricated buildings in the context of the post-pandemic changes in housing. The master's thesis from 2021 was supervised by Prof. Gerd Baron and Prof. Bettina Menzel.
Non Architecture Awards for Unbuilt Projects - The winners of the "Non Architecture Awards for Unbuilt Projects" received a certificate, were published on the competition's homepage and mentioned in other specialist articles. One prize was awarded within each of the four prize categories. "This project seems to have sprung from a time machine and slipped straight into the future. It is a very fascinating work about the private domestic dimension within a typology that is standardised down to the last detail. Just as good as a breath of fresh air," say Stefan Hier and Lukas Rungger, jury members and founders of "network of architecture" about Tatiana Lebedeva's submission.
Personalised living capsules - How much influence do diseases, such as tuberculosis around the time of industrialisation, have on architecture? Private or collective space, what is it like in Russia today? With these theoretical questions in mind, Lebedeva focuses on examples of prefabricated buildings from the 1-510 series, also called "Khrushchevka", in the southwest of Moscow. For the seven-storey prefabricated building, Lebedeva designed personalised living capsules, adapted to the wishes and needs of the residents. These are to be bookable by subscription and thus flexibly adaptable to life.
