Park Zaryadye won the ArchDaily portal award
Park Zaryadye won the award of the international architectural portal ArchDaily as the best project in the field of public spaces, as reported by the Chief Architect of Moscow and the head of the design team Sergey Kuznetsov.
"I’m extremely happy about this outcome. Not only as an architect, not only as the head of the design team, but also as a Muscovite. I am glad that the work of a huge number of people was so highly appreciated, that Russia and Moscow were able to express themselves on the international architectural arena. And I’m just glad that Zaryadye is completed, brings joy to the city residents and became its new landmark," says Kuznetsov.
Zaryadye’s competitors were the Spanish project Pedra Da Ra Lookout Point (by Carlos Seoane), Israels Plads Square designed by COBE in Denmark, SEOULLO Skygarden by MVRDV in South Korea and another Danish project Park’n’Play by JAJA Architects.
The ArchDaily Portal Award has been on for 9 years in a row. Projects are divided into 15 categories by function. The winner is selected by user vote.
The decision to create the park Zaryadye was made in 2012. The proposal was made by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The project was developed by an international consortium led by the American studio Diller Scofidio + Renfro and guided by the chief architect of Moscow Sergey Kuznetsov. The construction works began in 2014, and in 2017 — on the day of the 870th anniversary of Moscow — it was opened for visitors.
