S+G Plan Wild and Pathless Park in Moscow
The historic centre of Moscow is plagued by near-constant traffic congestion detracting from the user experience of major world-class visitor destinations like the Red Square and the historic Kremlin site. The demolition of the Hotel Russia next to Kremlin in 2007 has opened a long debate in the city about the future of the site and the future of the historic centre of Moscow.
Working with Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Hargreaves Associates from NY, Citymakers Louise Grassov and Oliver Schulze were awarded 1st Prize in the international competition for Zaryadye Park on this site in 2013. The strategy to comprehensively change highway infrastructure allows the first new park in Moscow for 40 years to connect seamlessly with world-heritage site surroundings. Construction is under way and due for completion in 2017.
