As reported on this blog, the team of Diller Scofidio + Renfro, New York, is the winner of the international competition for the concept of Zaryadye Park in Moscow (images of the winning scheme are featured here). The second prize in the design competition for Moscow’s new central park has been awarded to the team of TPO Reserve (lead), Latz + Partner, MAXWAN architects+urbanists.

The scheme introduces four terraces based on the existing topography, integrating the buildings into the landscape. The upper level of Varvarka street is the belvedere overlooking the Moscow River. The terrace below is historical, with monuments and churches. New places in the park are mostly located on the third terrace and are united in a pedestrian ring. The fourth and the lowest terrace contains a large space for various events. The variety of size and proportions creates spaces for any types of events; the park is ready for any future use. At present time the park and the Moskva river are separated from each other. A passage under the road is the best and shortest connection with the water, and the smart new river dock will be the main entrance to Zaryadye park.
