Meanwhile, our Urban Sketching summer school team has prepared the virtual tour for its students: explore St Petersburg, its magnificent architecture and find aspiration for your creative sketching ideas.

Our students will create their architectural projects under our professors’ guidance and the best of them will be implemented as 3-D models at our laboratory.
