Zaryadye park awarded with special MIPIM awards prize
Zaryadye Park with a unique concert hall was highly praised by the authoritative international competition MIPIM Awards 2019 in Cannes (France), said Deputy Mayor of Moscow for urban planning policy and construction Marat Khusnullin.
“The special prize of the jury is a professional award, the expression of the opinion of the world’s leading architects. We are very pleased that such reputable and professional people gave such a high appreciation to our unique park. Zaryadie is the first park built in the central part of Moscow over the past two hundred years. The decision to implement this project was taken by Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin. And time has confirmed the correctness of this decision. The park has already become a favorite place for walks of Muscovites and visitors to the city. In the first year alone, more than 12 million people visited it”, said Marat Khusnullin at the awards ceremony.
Zaryadye Park, along with a concert hall, was nominated for an award in the category “Best urban environment restoration project”.
On the eve of the announcement of the results, the Russian project was supported by a unique musical program. In Cannes, on the stage of the Palace of Festivals, the soloists of the Helikon-Opera Theater performed the program “Legends of the Moscow Opera”. At the same time, the orchestral part of the program was broadcast from the Zaryadye concert hall.
According to the head of the Construction Complex, a professional team was assembled to build the park and implement the project of a unique concert hall.
“Employees of the Moscow Government, specialists of the city company Mosinzhproekt, foreign and Russian architects, engineers, unique specialists — we invited the best ones. And I want to thank once again everyone who took part in the project, which has become a new symbol of the Russian capital, Khusnullin concluded.
