Landscape architects from all over the world are invited to take part in a architect’s selection for the design of the Central Park area of Voronezh – a city of 1.000.000 inhabitants located 500 km south of Moscow. The area comprises over 100 ha of woodland north of the city centre.
It is obvious to the client that it is not possible to create a park of 100 ha with the same level of detailing as the reconstruction project for 10 ha realized in the years 2014-2017. Therefore the main task of the participants is to develop a strategy to make the park accessible and usable for different types of recreation and sports. The concept design should focus on the programming of the area, taking into account different scenario’s for different times of the year and of course the possibilities offered by the existing vegetation and relief. This can include intensive and expensive uses. The concept should include an estimation of both the costs and possible revenues of various programmatic elements.
