Pervouralsk invites tech students to participate in 300 city planning initiative

The Pervouralsk Department of Architecture recently selected a group of students from Pervouralsk Metallurgical Technical School to assist local officials in designing various architectural and landscape elements for the city's Pervouralsk 300 initiative.

Under the direction of chief architect Konstantin Hartmann, the students will work with a team of senior designers to develop sketches and design plans for the Vatutin Street park, as well as the proposed City Comprehensive Center, Ethnographic Complex, Sports and Recreation Complex and the Pervouralsky Recreation Park, Oblastnaya Gazeta reports.

"We adults conceive within certain limits," Hartmann said, according to Oblastnaya Gazeta. "The [college] guys, on the contrary, [have] unlimited flight of fancy. Even if some projects will not be implemented right now, they will point the direction for [future] development."

Last year, a group of students from Pervouralsky worked with members of the city's Department of Architecture to design the internal layout of the recently-opened Pervouralsk Training Center.
