The proposed program of work should focus on certain types of activities that schoolchildren can be engaged in when working with wooden architecture in Irkutsk. We consider the participants' vision of practical tasks and outcomes more important than the grace of the theory or history of the issue. A harmonious proportion of the vision of a perfect outcome and an understanding of "how this can be done" is welcomed.
The practical aspect is also associated with the feasibility of the program. Who is interested in implementing the program? What resources are required at each stage of the project's implementation? Will financial support be needed? What conditions are needed to implement the program, could there be any alternatives? It is also important to understand how long it will take to achieve the perfect outcome in accordance with the proposed idea of work.
What sustainable changes will occur after the project has been completed? In other words, what is the practical result of your project? How is it related to the educational outcomes of schoolchildren and to the historical and cultural environment of the city?
We are certain that there are points of energy for both schoolchildren, historians, urban planners, other professionals, and just for the citizens in the city; there are possibilities for research work and professional growth. Forms of involving the townspeople in the activities with the wooden architecture is also an important criterion for assessing the competition ideas. As people of various age will take part in projects with wooden architecture and in the educational process, it will undoubtedly raise the awareness of citizens so that the program of work will potentially integrate opportunities.
We consider it possible and important to understand the prospects for continuing work in this direction beyond the city – in the Irkutsk region.
Our position is not to set any limits for the content of the competition ideas, but rather leave some room for your creativity. However, there are some essential criteria that should be complied with in the concepts submitted to the competition.
