Architect from Great Britain Recognizes SUSU’s Best Students


The English professor held his second master class for SUSU students entitled “Design of a minimalistic home,” after which he recognized its participants. 

"Thomas Kern personally handed a certificate to each participant,” says Tatyana Efimova, general director of the study abroad center, Study Land, “The professor chose three winners, giving each a present. Second, third, and fourth-year students participated.”

After the one-and-a-half-hour master class, Thomas Kern presented each project to the group and carefully dissected the building plan. The gist of the project was to draw a model for a small home for a student or homeless person, in which they needed to find space for all household items to the best of their abilities.


Before beginning the practical portion, the professor gave a small presentation. In it, Thomas Kern talked about how homes are build, about the redesign of a large-scale project draft, and architectural education in international universities.

“I learned about the educational process in international universities, what requirements there are for students, and what kind of assignments they complete. Master classes are a good experience worth agreeing to,” said Maksim Yarovoy, student of the SUSU Institute of Architecture and Construction, sharing his experiences.

The professor thanked the students for their participant in the master class and wished them future creative successes. The famous architect noted that all of the attendees are winners, because each of them handled the assignments well and gained valuable practical experience.

The event was held as part of the 5-100 Russian Academic Excellence Project.
