Gorky Park Main Entrance — Park

International Tender for Gorky Park Main Entrance Square Concept Design. Gorky Park is a unique space in map of Metropolis of Moscow.

The creative people of Moscow have in Gorky Park a space to show the best of them. Be social, friendly, family, curious and interested. It is a ground of positive thoughts and memories. Therefore it is much loved and make Moscow proud.

Axis of Art – Muzeon – Garage

Feelings – purpose
interest/curiosity
inspiration

We shall bring composition axis connecting Garage with Tretyakovksaya Gallery via center of Gorky Park Arch and entrance square. We shall change the under sadovye passage to create a very accessible walk way.
The Axis of Art is connecting Galleries and contains many artistic objects on it.
The A Axis will give a straight line walk way with Art theme as option to river embankment walkway. It is all year active, the winter ice rings are not entering it.

Very comprehensive and user friendly information hub

Feelings
comfort
reliable
helpful
easy to use

We shall turn the connection between the Park and Muzeon into a safe and comfortable, high tech and readable information hub. We want to offer to visitors to Moscow and to the Park to start their day from planning the day in the information hub. Given all choice of what you can do ahead of day, which expositions to visit, which restaurants have best menu options, where to go with children or crowd densities – you can secure the best experience possible.

Fair ground of art

Feelings
nostalgia
pride
beginning of good experience

The front of Arch square we see as point of pride and history and symbol of Gorky Park. We suggest enriching the seasonal art expositions, with introduction of circular movable platform. Once without large scale art presence, the platform will turn, bringing the feeling of merry-go-round fair atmosphere. The square is a fair ground, braced to respect the monumental view on the Arch.
In the night time the movable circular platform will be a stage for use of the holograms techniques / media sculptures. We will bring the carousel

Landscape element

Feelings
understandable
seeing the arch as the main element
underlining its importance
guiding
protecting

The landscape will include topping, greenery and sit elements. All of them are following key directions and axis’s and emphasizing already exisitng architectural historical elements. The greenery is guiding us toward park and is bringing the feeling of park experience to the square.
We are differentiating the main passages and access zones for high people flow and curve out wait zones and more quiet areas.

As result we will bring people to Gorky Park entrance square

We have the best point to get information on how to spend day in the Gorky Park, Muzeon and Moscow. You should start your journey from here.

We are part of larger scale Axis of Art walkway. TheTretyakovskaya – Garage axis walk line will have art theme and functions as option to river views.

We will give good meet point/ wait point. The square will become part of park experience by quality landscape.

We will have new iconic point – nostalgy of fair grounds still vivid in Moscow people memories in form of modern art movable element.
