Tuchkov Buyan park – Saint Petersburg (RU)

Sense of a River

“Sense of a River” is a cultural park project. It is not only a homage to the culture of Saint Petersburg, it is equally an homage to the river Neva, the silent monument of the city. It is an oasis to be explored in the contemporary urban context. Their connection is reinforced by water, a historical and spiritual element of the site.Educational, artistic and sports activities are offered to the public in this ecological and welcoming area. It is a window of the city, a place to share, and a comfort necessary for daily life.Different functions are exploded on the field, supported by small-scale architecture. This decentralized composition enhances the idea of walking. In this vision, the landscape is no longer a frozen image, but a sequence of narrative movements that gives life to our space.
