Creating a “park quarter” by linkage
Location: St. Petersburg, Russia
Client: Administration of Frunzensky District of St. Petersburg
Programme: City quarter, which combines two parks, residential blocks and several cultural, entertainment and memorial objects.
Frunzensky Park is a green heart of a city district with almost half a million population. It occupies an area of 175 hectares and today resembles a ring of recreational spaces, utility, industrial sites and «wild» places surrounding a newer residential complex.
The objective of the project is to link the existing uses of the territory and the city’s plans for the creation of new facilities here. Instead of a set of scattered “random neighbours”, a broad kaleidoscope of functions, objects and scenarios, united by a common park landscape are proposed.
The planning framework of the project is the “ring of heroes”. This is a park route, which passes through ten key nodes and makes that the diversity can be experienced.
