Streets for pedestrians. From My Street to My District

Moscow has been implementing a large-scale public design programme My Street since 2015. It resulted in the transformation of the urban environment of the central districts of the capital: pedestrian zones, expansion of sidewalks, increase in the number of green spaces. The results of the project have already had a significant impact on the lifestyle of Muscovites, making the city more friendly for pedestrians, stimulating the development of street life, food services, services, new types of mobility. The logical next step is to extend the public design programme beyond the central regions. The My District programme is also designed to meet the demands of the residents regarding the improvement of the whole city.

  • How can the My Street experience be applied to areas outside the centre?
  • How can the quality of the environment in micro districts be improved? How can they compete with the city centre?
  • How do we consider the unique features of the areas when implementing the programme of urban public design?
  • How do we consider the interests of residents when implementing the programme?
