- Moscow, big success for Zaryadye Park
Waiting to visit Zaryadye Park in person at the next Landmark 2017 contest award ceremony (link), promoted by Floornature and to be held in Moscow on November 30, we propose to our readers the new images taken by photographer Iwan Baan. These photographs perfectly demonstrate both the central location of the new park and the interaction of citizens with space. Here the figures speak of a great success with the Muscovites, since the partial opening in September they have been more than 1 million. visitors in just two months.
The winners of the international design competition, is organized in 2012 by Moscow City and Chief Architect Sergey Kuznetsov, an international design consortium composed of Diller Scofidio + Renfro (USA), Hargreaves Associates (USA), Citymakers (Russia), Transsolar (Germany), Buro Happold (UK), Central Park Conservancy (USA), Directional Logic (USA), ARUP (USA), Arteza (Russia), Buro Happold (USA). All under the banner of Wild Urbanism, inspired by the four typical Russian landscapes: tundra, steppe, forest and swamp.
Here, the natural areas follow one another and offer places of aggregation, rest and observation. While the panoramic bridge, also called floating bridge because of its protrusion on the Moscova River, has become the new landmark of the city. All in tune with the volumes of the pavilions in the park and the large Philharmonic Hall which will open in April 2018, thus completing all the planned interventions in Zaryadye Park.
