About the Competition:

The International Competition for Zaryadye Park in Moscow, Russia, the most ambitious in Russia for the past decade, has been officially launched at parkzaryadye.com on April 18, 2013. The deadline for submission of Applications is May 22, 2013. The Competition is initiated by Russia's Federal and Moscow City authorities.

Zaryadye is a unique historic district in downtown Moscow, on the bank of Moskva river, adjacent to the Kremlin and the Red Square. After the demolition of Hotel Russia, the site has remained abandoned for over 6 years. In late January, 2012, it was proposed to turn this 130 000 sq. m area into a multi-functional public park. This challenging project has the potential to be one of Moscow's largest and most significant pubic space development projects in recent decades, attracting much attention both inside and outside Russia.

The aim of this Competition is to develop an Architecture and Landscaping Design Concept that will form the basis for the creation of a contemporary Park with a high quality infrastructure that will be open for the public all year round. Architects, landscape architects and urban planners, who can bring together multidisciplinary teams of specialists in the fields of engineering, management of public spaces, entertainment industry, cultural programming, economy, sociology, anthropology, dendrology, ecology and wildlife management, are expected to participate in the Competition.

Full rules of the Competition, Application Forms and Procedures, Information about the Jury Panel and updates regarding the stages of the Competition are available on the Official Website of the Competition at parkzaryadye.com.
