Zaryadye Park in the World Architecture Festival finals
The park will compete against the world’s best landscape projects.

Zaryadye Park has been shortlisted in the World Architecture Festival competition in the Landscape: Urban Projects category, Sergei Sobyanin announced on his VKontakte page.

 

The shortlist also includes projects from Beijing, Singapore, Sydney and other cities.

The World Architecture Festival (WAF) has been held annually since 2008 and awards the latest achievements in global architecture. In the finals, about 200 landmarks compete in 31 categories.

Zaryadye Park has received international recognition before: it was nominated for the 2018 MIPIM Awards along with Luzhniki Sports Complex. The park also won ArchDaily in the Best Public Space category.

The City Government decided to build Zaryadye in 2012. The park opened last year in time for Moscow’s 870th anniversary. The park is divided into four nature zones: forest, steppe, meadow and northern landscape. The park includes the River Overlook footbridge, the Nature Centre Pavilion, a cultural exhibition complex, an ice cave and the Media Centre.
