This is the first Russian competition on adaptation of architecture monuments for people with limited mobility which was founded by the National charity fund “A city free of barriers”.

Participants had to design a project for adaptation of buildings and territories of the museum complex of the World War I located in museum “Tsarskoe selo” for all groups of people with limited mobility.
Saint Petersburg state university of architecture and civil engineering was presented by two teams of the faculty of architecture: chair of architectural design and chair of architectural and urban building heritage. Two completely different projects were prepared. One team proposed a more creative design: they used a bigger space of the museum complex, used ground floor space and watchtower. Project prepared by the chair of architectural and urban building design was based on the museum activity technology. “We didn’t want to change the museum, - says supervisor of the group L.L. Kaloshina. – We wanted to preserve everything as it is now, but at the same time to adapt the environment for people with limited mobility. Main idea of our project was to provide such a space where these people would feel comfortable moving together with other people during an excursion.
According to the results of the competition first prize was granted to students of SPSUACE Andrey Shcherbak, Margarita Shchigoleva, Serafima Ivanova, Olga Zemskaya and their supervisor professor O.P.
