Zaryadye is not just the first large park built in Moscow in the last fifty years. Most importantly, it was conceived as a new design and a new function for a derelict plot in the very heart of the city. Instead of building more expensive real estate or a high-end mall, the city created a new symbol for itself located in close proximity to Moscow's world-renowned landmark St. Basil’s Cathedral. This modern, multifunctional and technologically complex space open to citizens and tourists was designed and implemented by a large international team. 

  • When considering the redevelopment, why did the city make a choice to create a public space? 
  • What was the process of creating a design for the park? What is the future of Zaryadye? 
  • Will it become an inspiration for other Russian cities and for the world?
