The Zaryadye Park info pavilion has launched its own app
The interactive information pavilion of Zaryadye Park has launched its own tablet app for iPads. Now the virtual exhibition dedicated to the future of the park can be viewed not only by using a tablet issued at the pavilion’s entrance, but also one can use their own tablet, on which the information can be “carried” home.
The operation of the free Zaryadie app is very simple: just point the “window” with the viewfinder onto the QR-code information panel in the interactive pavilion and the information is loaded onto the tablet. Recall that the walls of the central round hall of the pavilion are covered with panels with QR-codes containing basic information about Zaryadye and the project of the future park, as well as all six concepts of the architectural competition finalists, and the best existing parks in Russia and around the world. The launch of the free Zaryadie app is a logical step in the development of the project, which was included in the list of contemporary projects from around the world which embody the “architecture of the future” complied by the authoritative international portal The Huffington Post.
The international competition for the development of the landscape and architectural concept of Zaryadye Park was completed in November 2013. The winner was the international consortium led by Diller Scofidio + Renfro (USA). The consortium included teams of various specializations from Russia, the U.S. and Europe: landscape architects Nargreaves Associates (USA); Russian urbanists Citymakers (Russia — Denmark), experts on transport Mobility in Chain (Italy), experts on climate engineering Transsolar (Germany), engineers Buro Happold (UK) and others.
The interactive information pavilion of Zaryadye Park is open on the territory of the future park off of Vasilevskiy Spusk. The pavilion is open daily year round — from 11:00 to 20:00 on weekdays and from 10:00 to 19:00 on weekends. Admission is free.
