Zaryadye Gardens

Moscow, Russia - Moscow wants to add a new icon to the city. Not in the form of a building, but rather a special outside space: a 21st-century park.

Zaryadye Gardens

This intended park lies in a prominent location, directly next to Red Square and the Kremlin. So as to generate as much brainpower and design strength as possible, the city put out an international tender for the design.

ARCADIS Landscape Architecture was invited by MVRDV to join a consortium, in which Atrium and Anouk Vogel also participated. The park constitutes a new, green public space for all Muscovites and those visiting the city. In the submission, the location's rich history is fused with a beautiful future. The design envisages a network of paths, distilled from an "X-ray" of the area covered by the plan whereby every time layer is presented. This basis results in a collection of 750 different 'conservatories' varying greatly in quality and character. The park includes space for large number of facilities, including an underground car park, a concert building and exhibition spaces. With the design, the consortium was awarded third prize in this prestigious call for tenders. Landscape architect John Boon participated in the design team on behalf of ARCADIS.
