From June 15 to July 10, 2009, six graduate Urban Studies and Planning students from the University of Maryland (UMD) and seven graduate Architecture students from the University of Maryland, the University of Illinois, and Cornell University worked with sixteen Architecture students from the St. Petersburg State University of Architecture and Construction Engineering (SPSUACE) to prepare a redevelopment plan for an 18-hectare site at Rzhevka (Rzhevka 35), on the outskirts of the City of St. Petersburg. The faculty advisors were Marie Howland, David Falk, and Garth Rockcastle from UMD and Vladimir Linov from SPSUACE. On July 10, the students presented a redevelopment plan to the prospective development company, representatives from the City Planning Department, and SPSUACE faculty. As a final product, the following report summarizes their development process and our final recommendations.
